As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Meet Bernie the Chihuahua mix at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

UPDATE: Bernie has been adopted! But there are many other available pets at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. Visit the shelter to meet the animal who could be the newest member of your family.

Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the week." Every Thursday, we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Bernie, a male Chihuahua mix. Read more about Bernie below!

Name: BernieID: 11094Gender: MaleBreed: Chihuahua mix   Age: 5 yearsWeight: 13 poundsFur: Short, chestnut 

This Chihuahua mix is adorable and has the face of a little fox. His beautiful short fur would be easy to groom.

Bernie had an old hip injury that has completely healed. He walks without any difficulty at all, but you will notice when he has to relieve himself, he will do a “handstand” on his two front legs. It is quite funny and surprising the first time you see him do it. He probably learned to accommodate the hip injury and just never gave up his gymnastic talent. It only adds to his unique personality and charm.

He is calm, enjoys going for walks, and is very easy to handle on leash. Bernie likes people, but he does not demand attention. He would be an excellent companion for someone who wants to share a home with a sweet dog.  He’d be happier in a more quiet setting than in a very active household, and would be a great choice for an older person or couple looking for a new best friend.

His adoption fee is $120, which includes his neuter surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness checkup with a participating veterinarian. 

If you are interested in meeting Bernie or any of the other available animals at the shelter, visit the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society at 851 E. Grand Ave., San Gabriel, Calif. 91776, Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For more information, call (626) 286-1159.
