Dog - Floppy-eared, shaggy dog who acted as the commercial spokes-dog for
the Ford Motor Company in the 1950s. Designed by animator Adrian Woolery, the
Ford Dog drove about the animated commercials in an automobile shaped like the
Ford Company logo. The J. Walter Thompson Agency created the campaign in 1952.
The Ford Dog was the first commercial character to inspire merchandising
spin-offs, such as the Ford Dog doll bank.External Links
