This little smallie is looking for her forever home and comes to DREAM from a local animal shelter after she was picked up stray. The shelter emailed and phoned her former owners, but they neglected to come and pick her up. So sad, but Coco is much better off now.
Coco is a dignified little girl. She's not a lab, she's not going to be your bestie immediately. She's going to observe, to ponder. She's going to take her time revealing herself, and you know what? That's a-ok. There is so much joy in that - in learning about each other, in helping her heal from a life that was certainly not what we'd all want for our companions. She was abandoned, given up on - perhaps we'd all be a bit careful about who we give our hearts too, no?
She's had all of her vetting, been to the beauty salon to get bathed and pampered and has settled in nicely to her foster home. Her foster mama gives her consistency, dependability and works toward helping Coco regain her faith in humans again.
Coco is great about going potty outside when kept on a schedule. It's likely that she was an outside dog because of her condition when she came into rescue, and in light of that, we're really pleased with her progress. With consistency and patience, she'll continue to learn and grow.
She enjoys slow walks and getting out into the world, and she also happens to be deaf. She's affectionate and likes this new life of inclusion and cuddles (on her terms), but due to her lack of hearing, she needs to see your approach versus being surprised (and accidentally spooked) by it.
She's not destructive and does not chew things, thus she's not needed to be crated in her foster home. She'd do best in a quiet home without a lot of coming and going and frenzied energy.
Can you provide this little lady with a safe and secure home? Can you allow her the times she needs to trust and regain her footing?
If you are interested in adopting CoCo Chanel, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to our online adoption application. Coco Chanel's adoption fee is $400.
All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Coco Chanel will go to his / her new home microchipped, spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, up to date on vaccinations, and with all other medical needs addressed.
Almost every dog's veterinary expenses exceed our adoption fees; we are a non-profit.
DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group. We focus on the metro Atlanta area and can assist throughout the state of Georgia.
Since our rescue is entirely run and staffed by volunteers, our ability to travel long distances for adoptions is somewhat limited. We focus on Georgia, but if you are in a neighboring state, we might be able to work something out - we'll expect you to do your part.
DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.
