Those Amazing Dogs are globe-trotting adventurers who live with world famous archaeologist Felix Strong and his wife, Erica. As Felix and Erica pursue new evidence of ancient civilizations, they find themselves in unexpected adventures in some of the wildest places on Earth. The dogs, Max, Molly and Oddie are always ready to save the day when things become dangerous.
Max, the oldest, is a Lhasa Apso; he is a seasoned adventurer in a small package. Tinier still is Molly, a Yorkshire Terrier. Her youthful enthusiasm sometimes makes Max impatient, but her attitude and energy is often what keeps the team together. The largest of the group is the Pit Bull, Oddie. Though his sweet and simple nature often hides his strength, Oddie is always ready to use brute force to protect his friends or help those in need.
