Which is correct?

She called the dog's name and tried a few commands to get his attention, but he was staring at the street and (wouldn't listen / wouldn't have listened) to any of them.

Thanks!

    Wouldn't listen. 

    However, that is conversational English, so the correct written version would be 'would not listen'

    In that context: "wouldn't listen''.
