Brilliant and heroic, the dogs and handlers of the Dog Squad put themselves on the front line every day to fight crime and keep citizens safe. Meet Ruger, the go-get-'em police dog that bit through a couch to catch a cat burglar, and PD Butch, the courageous dog that put its life on the line to diffuse volatile incidents and prevent tragedy. There's Michelle, the police detective turned Dog Squad handler, whose expertise as a trainer earned her an unbeatable two-dog tracking team; and there's Digger, the police dog so loyal it stood guard over its handler, Gary, after he was gunned down in the field. These stories of the Victorian Dog Squad's courage in the face of danger give a rare insight into the high-octane world of police dog work, and into the sturdy bond that exists between a police dog and its handler. Handlers and their families share stories of some of the best and brightest PDs to make it through the squad, where dogged pursuits save lives.
