13 x 30 minute episodes
Hunter, Colleen, Exile, Blitz, Shag and Muzzle appear to be ordinary dogs.
They are, in fact, the pets of heads of state from around the world, and when a crisis arises somewhere in the world, a mysterious figure known as the Master issues a distress call, and the dogs appear at the Master’s side.
He endows them with superpowers, and the dogs – now Cano-Sapiens – use their abilities to do whatever it takes to right the wrongs.
Hunter, the US President’s dog, is a mutt with super sniffing, tracking and retrieving powers. Colleen, a Collie, is the British Prime Minister’s dog and a martial arts master. Exile, a Siberian Husky, is the dog of the Russian President and has super strength.
Blitz, a Doberman, is the dog of the German Chancellor and has super jaws and claws. Shag (the Swiss President’s old English sheepdog) also has super strength, and Muzzle – the Master’s deranged and aggressive rottweiler – serves as the final option for the team. The Rovers only use him when they have no other choice.
