Joe, a trained member of the military's K-9 corps, was falsely accused of attacking his master, Sergeant Corey. Joe managed to escape before being killed and a bounty was put on his head. While Sergeant Corey tried to find him before the authorities did, Joe managed to help the people he encountered on his travels. Although Corey always came close, he never managed to find Joe. During the second season, Corey was called back to duty and Joe teamed up with Josh McCoy, a hiker, and continued on his trek while helping others. Written by

Fond memories of my youth, watching a German Shepard save the day, only to have to take off moments before his trainer rolled up in his Jeep. A modern reincarnation of Lassie, Joe not only told of 'Timmy' down a well, he managed to nab the bad guys for the police and otherwise save the day.
The trainer in his Jeep stands out in my mind... all these years later, the driver drove it without a roof or doors, and he *never* used his seat belt. If anyone would be wearing a belt in the '70s, you'd think it would be a guy with no doors.
Years later, this same theme would be repeated on A-Team, Incredible Hulk, etc.
