Adopt This Wheelchair-Bound Dog

If you've been struggling to turn over a new leaf and be someone other than your usual self-indulgent prick self, it's clear there's only one way out: adopt this adorable dog in a wheelchair.

Meet Latte, a 4-year-old toy fox terrier mix whose special needs make her all that much more off-the-charts cute. According to the Animal Care & Control, her back legs are paralyzed, but that hasn't stopped her from enjoying life with the help of her high-tech wheelchair."

"Latte's adopter needs to understand the special needs of this dog. Latte will require extra care with keeping clean, preventing pressure sores, etc., and she will need to go to the vet for checkup at least twice a year," ACC noted on its website.

Note: Latte's adoption fee will cover her wheelchair, too.

If you're not up for that kind of responsibility, but you're still looking to be a better person, then hit up the Bay Area Pet Fair and Adoptathon this weekend where you can choose among 1,000 homeless animals, including dogs, kittens, rabbits, pigs, rats, roosters, and birds.

For every pet adopted, $50 will be donated to an adoption group, and each new pet owner will get a $25 Pet Food Express gift card. The goal is for 600 pets to find a home this weekend, preferably your home.

  • 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.'"
