Bosco's Story...
Bosco's owner died in hospice care, leaving a grieving 14 year old Bosco without a place to go. His owner's family was referred to Tyson's Place Animal Rescue, where our mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding homes for their pets. He arrived at our rescue, confused and anxious about all the changes. Within a few weeks, he blossomed into a wonderful, friendly, loving boy. He loves cuddling on the bed or couch and sleeps soundly.

He is housebroken and crate trained. He would do best in a home with someone who is home much of the time, as he needs to be let out more often for potty breaks due to his age. He has been around children and likes to play ball with them. He would do best with older kids who know how to give him some space when he wants it. He has his favorite stuffed animals that he enjoys chewing on and does like to go for walks. His favorite activity is to go for a car ride and stick his head out the window, letting the breeze and the smells reach him.

His previous family described him as friendly, smart, affectionate, and a quick learner. What more can you ask for?

Bosco has lived with small dogs and does fine with them. He has met a variety of different dogs at adoption events and is relatively indifferent to them. He also has been exposed to older cats and ktitens and barely gives them a second glance.

Bosco has just had a dental cleaning and a wart removed from his head, so he is in great physical shape. He has years left to live! Bosco has a special adoption fee of $75 - this includes vaccinations, heartworm test and prevention, microchip, and flea topical. For more information, please email or fill out an application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bosco, a Jamestown 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 Jamestown, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Jamestown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jamestown 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 Jamestown 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 Jamestown paves the way for another one to be saved.
