Skillet's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Skillet's Story...
This 2-3 year old Jack Russell mix caught our eye immediately at Animal Care and Control. Skillet was found tied up in the backyard of a house who’s residents had been evicted a few weeks prior. Poor Skillet was then transferred to the city pound where he wiggled his way into our hearts.


This little guys has some amazing coloring; almost looking like a very tiny cattle dog. He seems pretty social with other dogs, but loves having his head rubbed. He’s a little guy but big in personality. Skillet is new to NLOL, but as we learn more about him, we’ll update it here! To meet Skillet, please contact us today!


*Special note: Skillet was named by one of our longtime supporters as a birthday gift. If you would like to gift the rights to name one of our future new kids, please email us at chicago@nlol.orgtoday!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skillet, a Chicago Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Jack Russell 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 Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
