Bald-Headed Dog Tries to Lure Adopters With Toupee, Funny Hats (Update)

Breaking News, Jan, 23: We just learned that Neeners has been adopted by a loving family in Sacramento. They reportedly love him just as he is, without the toupee. 

Original Story Jan.20: Poor Neeners has been stuck at the Animal Care and Control Shelter since September, with no potential takers in sight. It's been really hard for volunteers to watch this "staff favorite" repeatedly get passed over, considering he's young, sweet, and energetic. 

Perhaps it's that bald spot on his head?

Neeners came from a neglectful and abusive home, and upon arriving to the shelter, had a lump on his head that needed to be removed. "His hair growth there has been a bit slow," Deb Campbell, spokeswoman for the ACC tells us.

So to make the pup more appealing (or rather to show what a trooper this pooch is), volunteers put together a fun video of Neeners trying on different hats and head scarves. 


"We can’t believe nobody has adopted him," Campbell tells us. 

We can't either. Will someone please go get that dog and take him 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.'"
