Top Dog is a 1995 comedy action film, directed by Aaron Norris and starring Chuck Norris. It was Norris' last movie to be released theatrically, before he shifted to acting in direct-to-video films for several years.
In the film, Noris' character, Jake Wilder, is partnered with Reno, a police dog, whose handler was killed. Wilder and Reno investigate a plot by domestic terrorists to attack a conference on unity. Wilder and Reno survive assassination attempts and several hand-to-hand fights with the terrorists and eventually discover enough clues to foil the attack.
The film received mainly negative reviews; it was the third in a series of similar films released the same year.
The film opens as two white nationalists destroy an apartment complex in which most of the residents are minorities. A veteran police officer and his police dog, Reno, investigate the crime and realize the explosives are military in style. Their investigation takes them to the harbor, where they find a ship loaded with weapons. They are discovered and shot; the officer dies, but Reno survives.
