This series never featured any foxes or coyotes in Wishbone's "contemporary" stories. The titular Jack Russell terrier occasionally interacted with cats. He confronted a black cat in the Halloween episode "Halloween Hound: The Legend of the Creepy Collars".

Only the characters from Wishbone's literary daydreams and the audience can hear him speak throughout this entire series. The characters from Wishbone's daydreams view him as whatever famous character he portrays, not as a domestic dog.
