“Well, it sure looks like you just might be looking for something.  Look at me and I think you’ll see, those lonely eyes don’t have to be alone tonight!”  No one likes to be lonely.  I know I don’t!  Are you lonely?  Maybe we can pair up these lonely eyes and never be lonely again!  I’m Derek and I’m a male, black, Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a docked tail.  I’m about nine years old and I weigh about fourteen pounds.  I really enjoy interacting with my human friends.  They’re fun!  I’m friendly with all the people I’ve met so far.  Well, let’s clarify. I like adults.  It’s not that I can’t get along with kids…but the little ones, with all that running and barking, I mean squealing, well…it makes me nervous a bit.  No squealing adults either.  Just sayin. I like my four-legged friends and I do enjoy some outdoor time with them but I’m most interested in being your lap dog. I love sitting with you and I absolutely love being petted!  I also love my toys and especially toys that squeak!  I can really bring a toy to life and I like pushing and chasing my toys (or fetching them if you give them a toss)!  I’m just a happy-go-lucky sort of guy and I can fit in just about anywhere.  I like walks and I’m good on a leash.  I’m crate trained (sometimes I bark in there, sometimes not) and I’m house trained too.  Well, I say I am.  SRT says they need a little more experience with that before signing off!  Well, OK then.  I like riding in the car and I’m quiet when we travel together.  I don’t want to be seen with these lonely eyes any longer.  I want to be seen with you!  Click the ‘Adopt’ tab, complete your adoption application and put me, Derek, as a dog of interest.  My adoption fee is $200.
