Bernie is an 8 year-old white chihuahua, around 8 lbs. He is neutered and micro-chipped and a healthy boy! Bernie was rescued in very poor condition - skin and bones and covered in fleas and flea bites, but I am happy to report that he is thriving! Bernie is the most sweet-natured chihuahua I have ever met. He loves snuggles, climbing in your lap (literally anyone's lap) and giving kisses. He loves to burrow under blankets to sleep. He's housebroken and does great walking on a leash. Bernie loves to play with his foster sisters (also Chihuahua mixes) and loves playing with and chewing on toys. He is very even-tempered and does great with any stranger. He has shown no need at all for a kennel and loves running around with foster mommy - car rides, errands, patios, visiting family and friends, etc. Bernie is very easy to fall in love with almost instantly. He is very ready for his forever home and to find the family who will love him FURever

About Cody's Friends Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

About us: Cody was the first pet I owned as an adult. He was a Shih Tzu that I bought unknowingly, from a Puppy Mill. He fought for his life and barely survived, suffering for the first few months of his life. From then on I was stirred by a ferocious passion to save as many dogs as I could through networking with other rescue groups and saving the ones I could off of cold streets and unwanted in shelters. Cody did not live a very long life due to a weakened body, but I was able to love on him for eight good years! He will always be loved and forever remembered. With over 400 dogs rescued so far, we ARE making a difference!!
Thank you for visiting and considering a rescue........................

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for adopting and not buying!!! Every week hundreds of highly adoptabledogs are put to death by local shelters. Most people would be amazed at the purebred and beautiful dogs available, if they walked into their neighborhood shelter.

Rescue organizations, like mine, work hard to save as many as we possibly can but is a never ending process with breeders and Puppy Mills selling unhealthy animals to the public. If you EVER saw a puppy mill you would NEVER buy again!

All of my dogs are neutered or spayed, vet checked, completely vaccinated, wormed, groomed and checked for heart worms. They are all are current on Heart worm medicine, flea, and tick medications. Upon request, they are all microchipped as well.

Adoption fee is $200 to $250 (older "friends' can be less, please inquire. Puppies are $300 - Besides fully vetting all dogs, some of of the dogs I rescue, 1 in 5 I rescue have heart worms which is very expensive to treat. I also take in dogs who need surgeries and are close to death.
** Please note that I do not usually adopt out my dogs with children under four years of age.
