The Premise: Police officer Scott James is on the cusp of a great career promotion from lowly street cop to a cop in the esteemed LAPD Metro Division when everything goes wrong. In the span of just a few minutes, Scott and his partner Stephanie--while searching for a pop-up noodle joint--are involved in a brutal heist (by chance) that ends with Stephanie dead and Scott physically and mentally scarred. Having been shot at point blank range before he passed out, Scott's last memories are of his partner's haunting words, "Scotty, don't leave. Don't leave me, Scotty!" as he tried to crawl his way back to the patrol car to radio for help.
Driven by guilt and the bitter need for closure, Scott refuses to take medical pension or retire and instead, trains to join the LAPD K-9 unit (despite the fact that he has never been around dogs) as a last resort. It is there that he meets Maggie, a retired 85lb German shepherd who has had her own share of tragedy and heartbreak as a working military dog in Afghanistan. Bruised but perhaps not yet broken, both Scott and Maggie will have to learn how to trust in a partner again and prove to those around them that they are capable of getting back on their feet, and paws, to bring Stephanie's murderers to justice.
