FBI Special Agent Jenna Janson and her collie Roxy jog together daily and Roxy always stop by the homeless woman.

As Sandi becomes comfortable with Jenna she tells her of the terrorist plot she has overheard the three men talking about. Jenna asks Sandi to come to Walter Reed Hospital where they run a collie program that matches up veterans and collies. Here begins the search for the terrorists and an amazing partnership between Sandi and her collie Taz.
