Storyline

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 Ian McKendell <imckendell@mac.com>

Fond childhood memories
15 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great short lived show. I have always been a dog lover and this show captured my attention when I was a young lad. I was always rooting for Joe to keep running and outsmarting the authorities. I guess it touched the deep part of the human spirit that always roots for the underdog or falsely accused. I remember that I was so disappointed when the show stopped coming on Saturday mornings. It was a nice switch from all of the animated shows that were on. I went on to have a wonderful German Shepherd named "Keesha" that lived to be over thirteen (13) years old. The show would often bring out the human aspects of dogs and I saw these very attributes in my German Shepherd. I know that it would be easy to have duplicated a "Lassie" type plot, but they took this show and added the drama of being a fugitive and made it something more. I wish we could have another show come out like this to entertain young and old alike.
