I have been showing miniature schnauzers in conformation, obedience, and earthdog for forty years, and am a professional dog groomer. I am not a veterinarian and cannot answer questions of a veterinary nature. However, I can give my opinion or share some experiences on some health issues. Everyone should remember that this is a volunteer service, and few of us are up late into the night. Medical emergencies require a veterinary visit, or at least a telephone call... not an internet question which might not be viewed and answered until hours later. If your dog is sick or injured, it should be seen by a licensed professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
I have taught obedience classes and have taught people how to groom for many years.

If she is deaf, she will not respond to anything you say to her. She may still hear loud noises, such as clapping or calling her in a louder voice, but eventually that will most likely be gone, too.
Your dog needs to be seen by a veterinarian. This could be something like ringworm, and the vet needs to run tests to determine that. This fungal infection is contagious to other animals AND to people
I wouldn't worry about this too much as the dog will always be yours... but, frankly, some dogs do bond to some people "just because". I also have always been the one who fed, walked, played with,
