Plot hole: Since the criminals who used the dogs to rob the bank in the first movie were never apprehended (No criminal worth their salt would tell the authorities their caper was spoiled because the canines ran off with their loot), there is no way the people who are hunting the dobermans in the beginning of this movie would know the dogs were still carrying the cash.
