Rocco's Story...
Rocco is a 7 year old, neutered male rat terrier who weighs about 9 pounds. He is as sweet as they come and will make a wonderful companion. He came to us from a local animal control where he was brought in as a stray and stayed for a month waiting for his owner to come and get him.... but no one ever came. He loves companionship - human, canine, and feline. We would love to see him adopted into a family with another dog or cat that would play and cuddle with him. He is very quiet so he would do well in an apartment, condo or townhome situation. He is potty trained and is crated while his foster mom is at work. He loves his belly rubs and his little nub of a tail is always wagging. We really can’t say enough good things about this little man- he is absolutely amazing and any family would be lucky to adopt him. If you are looking for a companion, a lap warmer, a play mate, an entertainer, a walking buddy… please consider meeting Rocco. Rocco is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, dewormed, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.


If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at under the "Adoption Process" tab.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Romeoville 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 Romeoville 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/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Romeoville paves the way for another one to be saved.
