My Tail

My name is Ezra Weinberger Hauptman. I am a tedoodle (terrier/dachshund/poodle). I was born on March 11, 2010, and adopted from Pets Unlimited in San Francisco on April 9, 2011. I was sent there after being surrendered in the East Bay. They took great care of me until my real home was ready. Pets Unlimited, which is now part of the San Francisco SPCA, is a wonderful place. My mom is a volunteer dog-walker there on Wednesdays, and she says it’s the best thing she’s ever done in her whole life. Until she met me. She has a blog,, which my dad made her for Valentine’s Day one year. She posts pictures of the dogs she walks each week. You can see pictures of me back in the day.

I am a special-needs dog with severe anxiety. My parents didn’t know that when they adopted me, but they love me for who I am. I wear a vest that says, “Please Don’t Touch Me.” It’s a good idea to pay attention to it; otherwise, my mom or dad might trip you. It happens more than you would think.

We live in an apartment on Nob Hill in San Francisco. I like to play with my stuffed Lambchops and my dad, eat whipped cream and hot dogs, go to the beach, listen to REO Speedwagon and sleep with my mom on the couch.
