Info about Wishbone:  "URGENT PLEA FOR POSSIBLE DEAF DOG - MEET WISHBONE:  Wishbone came to the shelter as an owner surrender. They did not note on his info. that he is deaf, but from all instances he does appear to not be able to hear. He does not respond to loud sounds, or any other type commotion that he is not directly looking at.
Wishbone came in named Popeye, but since he does not respond to that name or seem to hear, he has been renamed in honor of a child that comes to visit him.
The way this name change came about was on the day that we were at the shelter taking images of him, a young boy in the play area next to my daughter and I ran over and said "Hey, that do looks like Wishbone, what is his name?" My daughter said (being sweet to the boy) "He does not have a name - would you like to name him (knowing he would not respond to Popeye anyway)" The young boy enthusiastically said "I would like to name him Wishbone!" So Wishbone it is! We have now on several occasions seen the boy standing at the cage talking to his precious Wishbone through the chain link! It's quite adorable!
Wishbone does appear to be deaf, and would need a home that is equipped to deal with this sort of issue. If you have experience, or are a rescue equipped to deal with a seemingly deaf dog, please convo. us via pm. This dog is in a desperate situation at the shelter.
