Very impressive show that didn't last long
14 May 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This show was about a German Shepard dog who after he returns home with his military trainer from Vietnam,is falsely accused of attacking his owner. However,Joe is a very good dog. He is on the run helping out folks who are in great danger or in trouble,and he doesn't stick around on any rewards or get a special pat on the forehead for his good deeds. He is on the run from the military who want him destroyed if he is captured.

In case this sounds like an episode of the 60's TV series,"The Fugitive",well it is. I'm surprised that it ran for three seasons on NBC,which was most seen on Saturday Mornings during the 1970's. However,the story idea was impressive,even though it had a German Shepard in the David Janssen role as the fugitive on the run from low-lifes,bounty hunters,and the local police,not to even mention the military commander who plays the Barry Morse role as the one who wants Joe alive. The network executives who thought of this should be commented,and also I would love to see this series back on the air,not to mention making it to the big screen.
