Rex rescues "Brownie", a lost pup, who trails him around. No one responds to newspaper ads, so Rex "adopts" Brownie and teaches him street smarts and crime prevention. Meanwhile an Egyptian exhibit is coming to town, and Danny takes Rex. Crooks pull guns to steal the gold artifacts, but Rex grabs the loot and alerts guards. Then he sniffs a familiar scent on the exhibitor's daughter. Clasping her hem, he tows her to - Prince, her lost puppy!
