Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Koko was 12 years old when she was surrendered to a local shelter. She had bladder stones, bad teeth and heart murmur. As soon as she came into her Final Refuge home, ODH began vet visits to help her into the best health possible.
Koko is a feisty little Chihuahua, who bosses the resident greyhounds and cats in her new home. She is full of energy now and she loves to walk with her pack when it’s nice weather.
Watching Koko learn to trust again and grow into being a snuggler (on her terms) has been a joy for her new family. Wonderfully, she is also very sweet to the vets who adore her.
Koko loves to chase the female greyhound she lives with all through the house. She also loves her soft toys which she plays fetch with (when the greyhound doesn’t steal them first)! Being outside is fun for her and sometimes she just supervises from the view of her sling bag.
The best thing for Koko is that she is now much healthier from all the ODH vet care and she has learned to trust from all the love she receives in her forever home. Her new family loves seeing her seek out a sunny spot to relax and clearly enjoy every day in her new home. As with so many ODH dogs, Koko has shown amazing resilience and has left her past behind and embraced her new life.
