Short summary

Rinty is a police-dog (and faithful companion) assigned to a young Scotland Yard police-officer who covers the Limehouse district of London. The East India dock in Limehouse is the home of the scum of the world, especially a group known as the Mediterranean Brotherhood. Scotland Yard is looking for a mysterious "ape-man" (The Monk) whose deeds of violence on behalf of the gang-leader of the Brotherhood has put all of London on guard.

No prints of this film are known to survive, but the soundtrack survives intact on Vitaphone disks.
