Jerry Lee was played by Rando, a 3-year-old German Shepherd from West Germany. A year-long search was held to find the right dog for the role. Over 40 dogs were considered but none of the American German Shepherds were deemed suitable. Rando trained for 3 months with Karl Lewis Miller and learned to understand commands in English.

When Jerry Lee attacks men in the bar and bites one of them by the hand it is obvious that the man has padded sleeve so that dog bite would not hurt him. See more »

Superior to the Chuck Norris/Dog Attempt, And One Of Belushi's Finest.
This is NOT the best cop/dog movie, but it IS superior to the Chuck Norris/pooch flick. Personally, I found Turner and Hooch to be superior to this work, but it is still enjoyable, and comes in second to my favorite.
HOwever, this is witty, and funny enough to be endearing, without resorting to Jim Belushi's usual tactics, although he does employ the beginning of those posturing and chest-beating tactics here. But they are not so dominant that the movie suffers. In fact, they play well in this situation, though it IS sad to watch a grown man who is romantically jealous of a dog.
This fails any Oscar possibilities, but I do not honestly believe that would surprise those involved with this work. The bottom line: This is a fun movie. It fails to warm the heart as well as Turner and Hooch, but does not make you feel sorry for the dog like some other movies have, along this venue. It is entertaining and fun, and rates a 6.6/10 from...
