Brooklyn 99 isn’t your typical crime show. Yes, there’s “crime”, but it mostly revolves around the 99 squad with lead detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Captain Raymond Holt (Andrew Braugher), and Sergant Terry Jeffords, played by none other than Old Spice spokesman Terry Crews. Since its debut in 2013, Brooklyn 99 has taken comedy to a different level with most of its main characters being people of color and people of  sexual orientations besides only straight #win! Notably, there are three women who are part of the main cast and are all women of color – Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, and Chelsea Peretti. All together, they make an amazing cast and prove that the makeup of a TV show doesn’t have to follow an old formula.

In the series, Captain Raymond Holt and his husband, Kevin Cozner, have an adorable Corgi named Cheddar. His antics include: exposing Amy, Jake, and Sarge hiding in the Captain’s bathroom through Amy’s allergies of dogs, running away to the park unbeknownst to dog-sitters Amy, Jake and Charles, and being a part of the annual Halloween Heist!

In season 2, we learn that Charles has two Rottweilers and an extra-humpy Bulldog named Jason. In the third season, Jason crosses the rainbow bridge.

To try and get Charles to get over Jason’s death, Rosa tries to give him a puppy, but falls in love with him instead – how could you not!
