Not bad. One of the lighter and more enjoyable episodes of season 4.

Usually the police don't investigate the disappearances of dogs. However, Friday and Gannon have noticed an odd trend. Again and again, in the same parking lot dogs keep disappearing out of parked cars. At first, the boss is against the men investigating--saying it's a matter for Animal Control. However, he becomes a softy when he thinks about his own beloved pooch and changes his mind.

When the men dig deeper, they find that the animals are most likely not being sold to puppy mills or for research but are instead stolen and returned later when a reward is posted. The thieves pretend to be Good Samaritans and no one is the wiser that they were the ones who took the animals in the first place.

This one is higher on the humor and Gannon acting goofy quotient than usual but it all works pretty well. Plus, if you like cute dogs, there are some sweet ones here. Also, although he appeared rather often in the show in various roles, Tim Donnelly (later of "Emergency" fame) appears as one of the evil dog-nappers.
