BIO:  Sadly, Coco’s owner passed away, and the family took him to the shelter where he was terrified. We were asked if we’d take him and “of course” was our answer! How could we leave a 12-year-old there?

Coco is a great older guy! He's very quiet and just wants a bed to lay his head down on and someone to care for him. He is used to having his person home a lot, and it’s best if you have another dog in the home. When his person is home, he likes to be in the same room to keep them company.

Our must-haves for sweet Coco include:

  • Someone who is home a lot
  • Another small, older dog
  • A fenced yard
  • No apartments, high-rises, or condos

Coco has a low blood platelet count. Therefore, no more surgeries or dentals for him and we are recommending no shots of any kind either. He just needs a place to live out his life in peace and comfort. Is that your home? He likes to follow his foster mom in the home or yard and will sometimes cry when she leaves him to go out to another part of the yard where he can't go. This is why we are saying no apartments or condos so he can enjoy his yard. Oh, he'll also sleep in a doggie bed by your bed at night and doesn't even ask to come up on the big bed.  

Coco needs a loving home... he is a really sweet senior, and he just needs you!


============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

AADR does not recommend 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 dachshund’s back or get bitten.

If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed on the bio form.  They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.

There will be an additional $60 fee added for a required Health Certificate if traveling out of the state in which they are being fostered.

We will not adopt into CT, RI, NH, ME, or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states.  If you have any issue with this, you will need to take this up with your legislatures.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page.  Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.

Click this link to apply: https://www.allamericandachshundrescue.org/apply, it will take you to the application form.

Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend.  We have volunteers who will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or Midwest.  We just can't get them from one coast to the other.  Please look for dogs on your coast.
