Detective Charlie Hudson (John Reardon), a cunning Major Crimes detective for the St. John's Police Department in Newfoundland, Canada, teams up with an unusual partner in this charming and lighthearted police procedural.
Rex (Diesel von Burgimwald) is a multi-scent trained German Shepherd with an excellent ear for unique sounds working in the police dog unit (K9). When his human partner dies, it looks like it's the end of the road for Rex... until Charlie is put in the picture.
Rex's heightened senses keep Detective Hudson hot on the trail of his suspects and, together, they investigate puzzling crimes, from a kidnapping which reveals a much larger conspiracy at play to an art theft murder which runs deep into the world of high society. With Charlie's deft detective work and Rex's keen canine senses, this crime-fighting pair is unstoppable.
