The new human in Rex's life is Davide Rivera, who quickly develops a strong bond with the police dog. The feeling is mutual, and Rex immediately loses his heart to the modest, quiet, yoga-practicing Davide, an extremely determined but self-possessed man who rarely raises his voice and prefers analysis to actionism.
