Olive's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Olive's Story...
Just like an olive is the perfect complement to a martini, Olive is the perfect complement to a full family! She's a 10 month old rat terrier pup who is sweet as can be. Olive arrived at ACL as a stray, and though she was frightened, she was always sweet. She's a gentle girl who errs on the side of submissiveness - sometimes you can startle her just by being too effusive with your praise! She loves to cuddle and be pet, and she's clearly a dog who gets confidence and calm from being connected to her humans. Olive will likely open up over time, and rat terriers have a TON of personality! Her adopters can expect a spunky little girl one she's comfortable. Olive is good with gentle, tolerant dogs, but we wouldn't recommend this particular breed with cats or small animals. Because she's a bit timid, she'll do best in homes with kids 6 and up.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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