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

I'm trying to figure out if this is the TV show, I remember from childhood, about a dog on the run.
In my mind it's a 'Hobo' dog, or there's some reference to Hobos.
I don't know, it's a fuzzy childhood memory.
Did this dog ever travel via freight train cars?
Was there a schmaltzy theme song to this show?
Was it ever repeated later during the seventies or early eighties? When exactly did this air? I was born in 1971, so I'm not sure if I'm old enough to remember this show, and I wonder if I'm confusing it with another show starring a dog (NOT Benji!!). Were there other TV programs STARRING dogs in the 70s-80s time period?
