Is this the show I'm thinking of?
10 July 2005 | by raylotekkaSee all my reviews

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?
