The Plague Dogs, which is based on a novel by Richard Adams, is a 1982 animated adventure film directed by Martin Rosen. In an animal research facility in England, a black laborador-mix named Rowf (Christopher Benjamin) and a fox terrier named Snitter (John Hurt) are repeatedly subjected to torturous experiments. With utter disregard for the lives of the dogs, the scientists often dunk Rowf in a water tank until he faints and do unnecessary surgeries on Snitter. When a worker in the kennel forgets to latch Rowf's cage one night, Rowf and Snitter are able to escape and go into the wild. They soon befriend a crafty fox called The Tod (James Bolam), who helps them learn how to hunt for food. As Rowf and Snitter attempt to survive in their new environment, they must also evade bloodthirsty British soldiers, who are under the impression that the animals carry a strain of the bubonic plague.
