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!
