Cowboy_Bebop_-_Session_02_-_Stray_Dog_StrutSpike and Jet's next bounty takes them to Mars, where their target, Abdul Hakim, is wanted for stealing a valuable lab animal. To avoid capture, Hakim has had plastic surgery to change his appearance. At a bar, Hakim's briefcase containing the animal is stolen. Spike discovers the thief attempting to sell the animal at a pet store and, assuming him to be Hakim, holds him at gunpoint. Spike orders the store owner to open the case, revealing a Welsh corgi. As Spike leaves the store, Hakim attempts to take the dog back; the dog escapes, prompting Hakim, Spike, and the group of scientists who had illegally experimented on the dog to give chase. Spike loses Hakim but gains possession of the dog, whom he brings back to the Bebop. Jet gives the dog a collar tracking device so he can pinpoint Hakim's location once he inevitably steals the dog back. Spike takes the dog for a walk in order to flush out Hakim. Hakim consults a fortune teller. The scientists activate a dog whistle to find their "data dog", resulting in the corgi escaping from Spike. All the city dogs including the corgi run past Hakim and the fortune teller. Hakim steals a car and grabs the dog, while Spike and the scientists pursue him in their ship and truck, respectively. The dog manipulates the car door and jumps out. Spike reluctantly saves it by having it land on top of his ship. The scientists use the truck's harpoon to attach to Hakim's vehicle. This causes both vehicles to lose control and crash over the side rails of a bridge. They fall onto a police station and are apprehended. The bounty hunter show "Big Shots" announces that Hakim turned himself in and reveal that a "data dog" is a dog that has its intellect genetically enhanced. The dog, named Ein, now lives on the Bebop, much to Spike's chagrin.
