There are people in the battle.net forum or in /trade offering to level a pet for a fee. The pet must be cageable. (I can't level it for you as I'm on a European realm.)
I was under the impression that you don't like pet battles and would just like to unlock your Menagerie, thus this would be the fastest option. Already having a pet at 25 allows you to learn caged level 25 pets, thus you can buy an already leveled one.
If you don't mind you can level your Idol yourself. Your Dragonbone Hatchling
, being a flyer, is strong against aquatics. You can find Moonshell Crab
s at the shore in Shadow Moon Valley which are level 25. You should be able to start your battle with your Idol, attack once then switch to your flyer. Aquatics often use their first turn to cast a shield or heal and your idol will therefore get no damage. I don't know if there's a stable master nearby to heal your pets, otherwise you find aquatics in front of the shrine in Pandaria and shrine has a stable master next to the flight master.
