Amid the flurry of hard-hitting election news yesterday, we were also captivated by a tearjerker about a puppy stolen from the San Francisco SPCA just hours before it was to scheduled to be adopted by a family. Fortunately, we can report good news today: Bodhi, an adorable light-brown pit bull, was returned to the animal shelter yesterday and is already enjoying his new digs with his adopted family.

A woman brought Bodhi, formerly known as James, to the shelter at about 2 p.m. yesterday, claiming she bought the dog outside a Safeway store in the Mission for $200. Apparently, the woman's mother saw the puppy on the news and realized the new addition to their family was the missing dog.

Now, animal shelter officials are looking for the couple who snatched the puppy. Video surveillance at the shelter recoded footage of a Latino couple in their mid-30s snatching the pup. The couple had a young boy with them, according to news reports.

The man is described as 5-foot-6, heavyset, with spiky black hair and a short beard. The woman is roughly 5-feet-6 inches tall and thin. She has dark hair. They were driving an older white sedan, possibly a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry.

Anyone with information is asked to call the SF SPCA at 554-3029.

  • 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.'"
