Fearless 20-pound dog chases bears away from California home (VIDEO)

MONROVIA, Calif. -- A 20-pound French bulldog scared off three bears who had wandered into the front yard of a California home.

Security cameras captured two of the three bears, about a year old each, walking around the home when the family guard dog spotted them.

Jules was apparently not scared of the cubs' size or being outnumbered. Video shows the dog chasing the cubs off of her turf.

One bear runs up on to the porch and then is chased back down and jumps over the fence.

David Hernandez, the dog's owner, rewarded the brave pup with a bath and a treat after her heroic act.

"She blew me away, couldn't believe that she turned into a Wolverine," he told KCAL.
