My name's Freddie. I'm a fluffy white dog -- well-bred, well-mannered. Not the kind of pet you expect to find on the road. But that's exactly what happened when my boy's daddy dumped me near a junkyard, with no place to hide. The rain was cold. I was miserable, scared, lonely -- and so hungry I could have eaten almost anything. The junkyard is where I met Spike (Junkyard Dog in Training) -- and Tiger, the real junkyard dog....
Who could have guessed that I, fluffy Freddie, would engineer the great escape for my newfound friend, Spike? Or that all we went through, to find our freedom, would be threatened when Tiger's evil master sets out to hunt us down? Or that we'd need the help of the Meanest Hound Around to protect our new friends?
