A Breed Apart is the thirteenth episode in Season 3, as well as the thirty-ninth and final episode from Teacher's Pet before the movie premiered over a year and a half later. It was directed by Ennio Torresan, Jr. and written by Jess Winfield.
Spot, concerned about what breed he is, drags Leonard to a dog show to find out, but he runs into a real conundrum with the purebred dogs. In the meantime, Mr. Jolly's father pays a visit and Jolly is not happy to see him after years of him, his mom, and the rest of his brothers and sisters being abandoned by him. However, he finds out his mother did not tell the full story.
