    got the sense of a g*ddamn dog

    Edmund investigating Sugar for Night Owl Murders:

    SUGAR: Louis gave it up at Casitas, man. I was the boss jock in my dorm. Louis was the sissy. Louis gave it up for f*cking candy bars. He ain't got the sense of a g*ddamn dog.

    What does "got the sense of a g*ddamn dog" mean?

    See definition 6 A (and to some extent 6 B). He doesn't even have the mental faculties of a dog.
