Like Watership Down, Plague Dogs is an animated cartoon feature based on a novel by Richard Adams and produced by Martin Rosen. And also like Watership Down, it is more appropriate for an older audience. Two dogs escape from a British government research lab. As the authorities hunt down the canine fugitives, the two dogs search for their original master and for a place where they'll be free from the iniquities and cruelties of Mankind. Plague Dogs was completed in 1982, but was not released in the US until two years later.

Without doubt the more heart breaking animation I have ever watched and one of the best, have to take a emotional break watching as it reflects the worst of humanity and its indifference to those in our guardianship: Wished I had never seen it, grateful that I did.

This is without doubt the most tragic animation I have seen, I had to watch in three segments to see it all as I found it very emotional, best I have seen and consequently the worst as far as our cruelty to those in our guardianship. If you are going to watch it, prepare for heartbreak

I loved this movie!!! It is a bit scary in some parts and is not meant for anyone younger than 11 depending on the kid. There's a great plot and parts that just want to make you cry. You'll begin to feel very bad for Snitter.(smooth fox terrier)Listen very close to The Todd and you may understand him.
