Facts about Wishbone

  • ID#: 422260

Wishbone is a silly old boy with a terrier tude and the vocals of a grouchy grampa!  He is funny and full of beans........he does GREAT with the terrier girls but doesnt much involve himself with the others.  He is bossy and sometimes rude and the girls line him out without hesitation, he loves it!!!!!!!!!

*******************************************************

Wishbone is a wonderful and lovable mature terrier with all the terrierisms in this world.  He is great to cuddle with, loves to sleep in the bed, get a treat and take life one glorious minute at a time........this guy has spent most his life in shelters and foster care, doesnt every dog deserve to spend at least his golden years in the arms of parents who WANT him??!!

Update:  Wishbone continues to mature in his foster home, where he is happy but its not the same.  He doesnt do well in active groups, like with puppies playing........ he has no tolerance for that kinda thing!  He really needs a indoor/outdoor home with low population and plenty of yummy chews.  Would do well with a strong female terrier.

UPDATE JUNE 08: Wishbone is gaining weight and confidence! He is improving in his citizenship and will make a great buddy to a terrier lover! Wishbone would love a terrier sister but no alpha males for this guy.....he cannot be a submissive but glad to be an equal. He is active and smart and energetic and everything a terrier lover would want.


ORIGINAL:Wishbone is the new guy.......a rescue up north closed down and on the last day poor Wishbone still stood there, unwanted, unclaimed and with no future. We couldnt have that and are arranging to take this boy in to foster care to prepare him for adoption. He is a little unnerved in large groups so will need a home with just a few dogs or would be happy as an only dog with a human home full time. Wishbone needs to gain weight as he prepares to be adopted!

About Ozark Haven Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are small group of individuals in Southern Missouri dedicated to the rehabilitation of homeless animals. We help all creatures, promote kindness to animals, respect for the earth and hope to launch a campaign in the next rescue year to combat the pet overpopulation problem in Southern Missouri.
The attitude towards animals here is not a good one; they are viewed and treated, mostly, as chattel. When they are no longer cute, or useful, they are dumped, shot, or just let go. We serve poor, rural communities, whose people do not have the money to pay for their own medical care, let alone veterinary expenses for their pets. Spaying and neutering is not the norm here at all, so we have a huge population of unwanted dogs and cats.

Our Adoption Process...

We do have an adoption process requiring an application. We do require our adoptive homes have strong and verifiable spay/neuter histories that we are able to confirm via our Application Processing team. We will not tolerate or entertain unaltered pets. We are available to answer any questions at all by way of email at Kristinawak@yahoo.com or Ozarksummer@yahoo.com

More criteria for adoption can be viewed at www.petfinder.com/shelters/MO401.html and an online submission application for adoption can be found at this url; http://members.petfinder.org/~MO207/app.htm
