Soccer (May 17, 1988 - June 26, 2001) was a Jack Russell Terrier dog actor. A veteran of many television commercials for companies like Nike Athletics and Mighty Dog Dog Food, he became famous portraying the talking dog Wishbone in the PBS television series of the same name. Chosen from out of more than 100 dogs who auditioned for the role, Soccer appeared in almost every episode of the show during its 1995-1998 run. He lived with his trainer, Jackie Martin Kaptan, on the Plano, Texas ranch where the Wishbone series was filmed. Soccer's role as Wishbone was considered by many to be one of the most beloved TV dogs of the 1990s.[1]
