Wishbone is a gorgeous black & tan piebald shorthair who loved being the joyful senior-people-greeter at an assisted living facility. Wishy is a neutered male, 7.5 years old, weighs approx 13 pounds with a sparkling personality.  He prefers the company of people over other dogs but adjusts well as long as they leave his toy alone! Wishbone has had a history of degenerative disc disorder. He has pulled through spinal pain & partial paralysis three times. He walks, runs, minds well &  loves to play fetch with toys & tennis balls - or anything handy that you will toss for him! Not a happy fan of small children. Not afraid of wheelchairs or walkers!
