The film continues the saga of two genetically altered life forms turned loose. One is a super-intelligent golden retriever with an uncanny ability to communicate and reason. The other is a hybrid monster, a non-human assassin created to track the dog and destroy all who come in contact with it. The golden retriever finds and befriends a fugitive from the Marine Corps (Marc Singer). The clever dog prompts the Marine captain to call an animal psychologist from the top secret laboratory where the genetic manipulation occurred. Together with this trusted psychologist (Tracy Scoggins), they attempt to elude the murderous monster and the gory trail of death closing in on them.
The sequel did not receive the benefit of a theatrical release that the original did. Instead, the film went straight-to-video. Both this film and the original were released on a double feature DVD by Artisan Entertainment in 2003, but has been discontinued. As of December 21, 2009, Lions Gate has not announced any plans to re-release both movies on DVD.
