The Plague Dogs is the third novel by Richard Adams, author of Watership Down. It is about two dogs who escape an animal testing facility and are subsequently pursued by both the government and the media. It was first published in 1977. Like its predecessor Watership Down, Martin Rosen directed and adapted The Plague Dogs into an animated feature film, which was released in 1982. I managed to catch this film back in the 1980s and it has haunted me ever since.
