|“||I want Max back. We're not talking about a street mutt here. We're talking a million dollar researcher.||„|
|~ Dr Jarret|
Dr. Jarret was a mad scientist and the main antagonist in the horror film Man's Best Friend,
He was portrayed by Lance Henriksen.
He kept trying to look for Max when he escaped throughout the film, with the help of his minions and the police.
Near the end of the film, Max chased Lori and the doctor to Emax (the place where Max was created). Then, Max chased after Lori through the lab. However, she managed to prove that she didn't mean to hurt him, and Max started to love her again. Suddenly, a battered, bruised, and furious Dr. Jarret broke through the door and attacked. Max leaped to protect Lori and was killed by Dr. Jarret when he shot him. However, pushed by Max, Jarret fell on top of a large cage, and Lori's new puppy, Spike, accidentally plugged in a live wire resting on the cage, making flows of electrical energy surge through Dr. Jarret's body, killing him.
