The extravagant cop Michael Dooley needs some help to fight a drug dealer who has tried to kill him. A "friend" gives him a dog named Jerry Lee, who has been trained to smell drugs. With his help, Dooley sets out to put his enemy behind the bars, but Jerry Lee has a personality of his own and works only when he wants to. On the other hand, the dog is quite good at destroying Dooley's car, house and sex-life... Written by

Did You Know?
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. See more
When Dooley takes the dog to the hospital, he is seen placing his gun on the table at the head of the bed on which he lays the dog. In the very next scene just a second later, as the dog is being wheeled out to be operated on, the gun is back in his holster although he was never seen putting it there. See more
[Dooley meets Jerry Lee
There he is, the best nose on the force. He could stick that snout in the wind right now and lead you to a stash in the middle of Tijuana.
Listen, I gotta be up front with you. I got a real bad feeling about this dog.
Hey, tough shit. That's all I got. Not I want you to take care.
Don't worry about the dog.
It's not the dog I'm worried about.
Jerry Lee is played by Rando, not Jerry Lee, as credited at the end. See more
