Imagine a tale that is something akin as a cross between Scarface meets Avatar with dogs and cats, but, you know, better. Yeah, that’s what we were told about Dirty Bones by “OMG” and Luke Whitehead (the creators). This is an epic tale of a mutt by the name of Rover, who lives in New Bark City, Growlsville. Rover is an ex “Gangster” that gave up his life on the streets to embark on a quest of self-discovery while standing up against the segregation between the mutts and the pedigrees. Rover quickly discovers that life in the city has changed as Dirty, the notorious “Big Dawg”, has taken control of New Bark City by force and is now fighting a vicious turf war with Madam Kitty for ultimate power. It’s a dog-eat-dog world where no animal is safe in this adventure of romance, gangsters, tommy-guns, fast cars and flea-bitten varmints! Dirty Bones, where every dog has its day!
