Dick Tracy Wiki

Bosco was a large dog that had been specially trained to protect injured or unconscious people.

Bosco strayed from his trainer and encountered the unconscious policewoman Lizz lying on the pavement at a gas station after she had escaped from the kidnapping attempt made by Earl Welz and Chilly Hill. Bosco barked to get attention, but he also growled at the men who approached, briefly delaying Lizz from getting medical attention.

The young daughter of Bosco's trainer heard him barking and approached the gas station. She was able to explain who he was and why he was behaving as he did. Lizz was then transported to a hospital where she recovered from her injuries.


  • It is hard to determine what breed of dog Bosco was. He had some characteristics of a Great Dane, but also of a Doberman or a German Shepherd.
