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.

Alright, let's get one thing straight: The woman is mine! Now we're both members of the animal kingdom. You know that and I know that. And we both know that this thing is really primal. So if you think you're such a badass you just try that one more time and you're gonna end up in a pet cemetary! You remember the movie Old Yeller? You remember when they shot him in the end? I didn't cry! Now come on!

Jerry Lee is played by Rando, not Jerry Lee, as credited at the end. See more »
As a young child, K-9 was one of my favourite films, and although my tastes have matured with time, this is still a very funny film, with one of the most underrated actors ever, James Belushi. Playing the superb Bill Murray deadpan style, but usually as a cop, rather than Murray's humorous loser roles, Belushi is a likeable dodgy cop. The end scene in the hospital is the best man and dog conversation ever, although Jerry Lee jumping in the poodle's car runs it pretty close.
My rating : 9 out of 10
