Freddie is a well-bred, well-mannered, fluffy white dog -- not the sort you'd expect to get dumped. But that's what happens. Now he's on his own -- alone on the streets -- until he meets up with Spike, a watchdog-in-training, who's just not mean enough to satisfy his cruel junkyard master.

But can either one really trust humans again? And if so, will Spike's past life threaten his newfound happiness -- and Freddie's as well?
