Two dogs, Rowf and Snitter, escape from a research lab into the wild mountain ranges of England. Somehow they must learn to survive and get along with each other in spite of personality differences: Rowf is violent and has no trust in humans, while Snitter is friendly and always looking for a good master.
When they begin stealing sheep, the local farmers try to have them taken back by the research station, but the lab staff isn't anxious to admit that they have had a breach. When Digby Driver, a young reporter, discovers that they lab was also working on Bubonic Plague, things escalate to a full-scale hunt.
