My story

Meet Nylah! Nylah is a 12 month old Australian Cattle Dog and Jack Russell Terrier mix who is a very petite girl at just 24lbs. This girl is happy happy happy! She has the most adorable underbite which is hard to see in her pictures because she just won’t stop smiling!! If you look closely at one of her pictures, you will see just a bit of it. She is very athletic and whizzes around the yard stopping here and there to explore something she fancies. We would love for her to have a fenced in yard where safety is not a concern. She gets along very well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is definitely from a herder breed and can be a bit vocal with the other dogs as they are playing but it’s all in good fun! Meanwhile she is as sweet as pie with her people! She likes a cozy bed or a spot on your lap to chill. She rides very well in a car but does prefer to be the middle passenger in the front seat so a seat belt harness helps her stay in the back seat. Nylah is crate trained and doesn’t make a peep once put to bed. She does appear to be house trained but we will expect that there will be a transition to her forever home so some attention will still need to be done to help reinforce this. If you are looking for a fun girl to spend your free time, Nylah definitely fits that description!! If you are interested in adopting, you can find her application at Her adoption fee is $375.

This dog is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and will be spayed/neutered. Please note that we are unable to hold dogs for any reason including moves and vacations. Once approved for adoption we require the adopter to complete the adoption and take ownership of their new companion.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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