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 can imagine somebody at a think-tank meeting at the TV network. "How about a weekly series about a homeless dog on the run?" Well, what happened was, the network ran with it, and came up with this very minimalistic short-lived TV series about a dog wrongly accused of attacking one it's trainers. The dog goes from location to location, helping those in trouble. Like Ethan Edwards in THE SEARCHERS, he can't stay to enjoy a reward or thanks. He's on the run. A bizarre idea for a series, but it sticks with you.
