Never Mind Those Pit Bull Maulings: 'Bun Bun,' 'Piglet' Need Good Homes

Posted By on Mon, Jul 26, 2010 at 2:30 PM

[image-4]Last week, a herd of pit bulls mauled a 2-year-old boy to death in Concord, and  an Oakland dog bit a girl's face over the weekend. They killed a 12-year-old boy in the Richmond District back in 2005, prompting a city law mandating all pits be spayed or neutered.

This would not seem to be the ideal market in which to attempt to peddle behaviorally challenged pit bulls. And yet, San Franciscans need not leave city limits to pick up the following doggies -- who, we're sure, will just kill us with kindness.

  • Goes by 'Bunny' for short.

On, we have an entry called "bully needs new home." No worries, that's just the breed -- American Bully, that is -- not this cutie's name. This San Francisco pup "needs a new home because my older dog and cat do not like him and I fear for his safety." Bully is the victim here, not the perpetrator. "He's very cute, friendly, playful and smart" and needs a "loving forever home." Awww....

Leave Pit Bulls Alone!!!!! - JUST TRUST ME...
  • Just trust me...
  • Leave Pit Bulls Alone!!!!!

Coming from, is Bun Bun from the San Francisco SPCA. He has self-esteem issues: "I am a sweet pit pup that was abandoned because I had a flare up of a common skin condition." You think a dog with a rash would eat you? He is young with "lots of energy, but I know how to relax, too. I have stolen the hearts of the staff members here and I'm sure I would steal yours, too." (Once he grabs on, he'll never let go.)


And then there's Piglet, also from the SPCA, "a real snugglebug," he tells us in first person. Does snuggling include gentle nibbling? "I get very stressed in the shelter environment," Piglet complains, but he's been living with a foster mom, and is "eager to learn and work for you." Just look at him: He's a snuggler, not a fighter.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
