Birth: May 17, 1988
Death: Jun. 26, 2001

Animal Actor. A Jack Russell terrier, Soccer is best remembered for playing the role of the adventurous dog, "Wishbone", in the PBS television series of the same name, from 1995 to 1998. He also appeared in films based on the series including, "Wishbone's Dog Days Of The West" (1998). The story which was also featured in books told the stories of a dog and his owner in a fictional town called Oakdale, who daydreamed about being characters such as Sherlock Holmes, Cyrano de Bergerac, Tom Sawyer, and Don Quixote. The television series itself won several Daytime Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, and honors from the Television Critics Association. Born in Connecticut, Soccer was selected from over 100 other dogs to play the role. He also appeared in commercials for the Mighty Dog and Chuck Wagon Dog Foods, and for Nike. Following the shows ending in 1998, Soccer went to Plano, Texas, and lived with his trainer Jackie Kaptan on her ranch until his death at the age of 13.
