PeeWee's Story...
PeeWee is the cutest little rat terrier puppy who was rescued from a hoarding situation. He has lots of love to offer you, and just wants your love in return. At about 11 weeks old, he is tiny, weighing about 2 1/2 pounds, so we are relatively certain he is of the mini or toy variety which usually does not grow bigger than 10 pounds, (but we can't make any guarantees). Because Pip is still a baby, he will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will attend to his training, exercise, housebreaking and socialization. He is tiny and fragile, so we recommend no children under 10 years old.

Rat terriers are a lively breed, intelligent and curious breed that needs lots of mental stimulation, but not necessarily a lot of chaos. They tend to be sensitive dogs that can get spooked by loud noises or unexpected activity or movements, and they can take some time to warm up to strangers. While they have a definite feisty terrier personality, they also have an "off switch" and love lounging on the sofa in a lap as much as tearing about the yard. This, of course, is a general overview of the breed, and PeeWee may not fit the mold - it's too early to tell.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PeeWee, a Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Rat Terrier puppy from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

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