Lola's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Lola's Story...
Lola is an incredibly sweet, happy and easy-going, 13-year-old, nine-pound, female Rat Terrier looking for a loving guardian.

Lola is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone she meets. She is also great with other dogs. She loves people and loves when they talk kindly to her. Sadly, Lola’s humans dropped her off at Chicago Animal Care and Control just because she was old … she was just skin and bones and blind due to suffering from undiagnosed diabetes.

While Lola is housebroken, she does need to go out fairly frequently due to her age. She is currently living in a foster home with other dogs who she gets along with quite well. However, her current foster dad works 10 hour days and she needs to go out more often than he is able to handle. So she is looking for a new foster home or permanent adopter.

Lola is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested. If you are interested in meeting and possibly fostering or adopting her, please fill in the online application at and follow up by contacting Gloria at or 773-907-0305. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido’s.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lola, a Chicago Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rat Terrier breeders who help with Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
