“I know I am enough, possible to be loved. It was not about me, now I have to rise above. Let the Universe call the bluff, yeah, the truth will set you free! Not in the name of love; I am not giving up!” No, I’m not going to give up. I’m going to find my loving forever home….and I think it’s with you! I’m Lil Bud (officially Otter…but who needs that!). I’m a male, white Miniature Schnauzer with natural ears and a natural tail. I’m about eighteen months old and I weigh about ten pounds. I’m a shy guy. A little timid….maybe even a little scared. But I warm up quickly. You know how it is with ‘past relationships’….you just need a little time to trust again. Yea, that’s pretty much it. I like a quiet home and prefer one where someone is home lots of the time. I’m small and given my demeanor, I’d like an all adult home or a home with older, very gentle children. I’m a great lap dog and I love to sleep with my human friends at night. King bed is a plus. I’m a playful guy and very fast! I like playing with most other dogs in a neutral environment but I like being the only dog at home. I also like toys…actually, I love toys! But I can be protective of them with other dogs around. I’d probably like it if I was your only four-legged friend…but we can try it with another dog if you have one that is the more submissive type. I’m crate trained and I’m working on my house training skills. I just need a little love and attention. I need to know that someone cares about me! Not in the name of love; I’m not giving up!
