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.  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!   Ask for Derek on your adoption application at

About Schnauzer Rescue of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Three friends, with different skills and compatible styles, and with a strong, common desire to save lost, neglected and abandoned Schnauzers, pooled their resources and worked together to form Schnauzer Rescue of Texas (SRT). The three Directors leveraged a collective fifteen years of rescue experience to create an organization with one singular purpose – putting Schnauzers in loving homes.
