When Kristen Stewart met her newest rescue dog, Bernie, at an animal shelter, the actress admits the pooch knew just how to steal her heart.

"She was very emotionally manipulative. She really milked it," the Twilight starlet told Kelly Ripa on Wednesday's episode of Live! With Kelly and Michael. "Then I got her home, and she was like, 'I have arrived.'"

But while Bernie wasted no time making herself at home with an A-list star, with Stewart again comparing the pet to a "roommate," her other rescue dog, Bear, didn't fare as well with the adjustment.

"She was very comfortable instantly," Stewart says of Bernie, "taking Bear's stuff. I was like, 'You need to slow your roll, girl. You need to watch it!'"

Asked by Ripa if she wanted to provide a playmate for Bear, the 22-year-old says it was a simpler motivation that led her to adopt again.

"I'm just sort of obsessed with rescuing the pooches," Stewart said.
