It's worth noting that not even the shame of carrying The Belush in this film could kill Koton's (Jerry Lee's) spirit. Lesser canine actors might have descended into a self-made hell of sloth, Milk Bones, and bitches. But not Koton, a real police dog :

On 18 November 1991, he was shot and killed apprehending a suspect in the attempted murder of a police officer. Ten days before his death, Koton found ten kilos of cocaine worth more than 1.2 million dollars. [IMDb]

Try as they might, neither Mac (in 1999's K-911) nor King (in 2002's K-9: P.I.) could replicate Koton's true-life police skills. They were actors; he lived the part.

R.I.P, Koton.
