KoKo's Story...
As HAHS has several different locations, please contact Bobbi at

KoKo is a gorgeous 4 year old chocolate long hair Dachshund who, despite a very rough start in her young life, loves to give kisses and warms up fairly easily when not threatened. Poor little KoKo started life in a puppy mill and when rescued, landed in an abusive home. One of these places resulted in the loss of most of her tail (doesn't stop her from wagging that stump fiercely when she's happy, though). For the last year, she did have a loving home in a blended family with six kids but was surrendered due to her fear of men.

Because of her background, KoKo is very fearful of loud sounds and loud people and hides at the slightest noise. She did okay with the fireworks over the 4th of July but shakes and shivers during a thunderstorm. Whoever is lucky enough to adopt this beautiful girl will need to be very patient with her as she adjusts. Weighing in at only 9½ lbs (and could stand to lose a pound), KoKo is okay around kids and other dogs but prefers a forever home without them. She wants your undivided love and attention in a very quiet home environment!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

KoKo, a Overland Park Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Overland Park, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Overland Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Overland Park 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 Overland Park 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 Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Overland Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
