The Metro Dogs of Moscow

JR (short for Jack Russell) is an embassy dog, and his human, George, is a diploma who travels for work. A lot. Now George is working at the Canadian Embassy in Moscow, and while he adores the globetrotting life, JR has had quite enough of leashes and perfectly manicured parks. He wants to go exploring, preferably off-leash. So one night, JR takes matters into his own paws and heads off to explore Moscow alone, and he soon falls in with a pack of strays. These aren’t just any stray dogs, though — the wily Moscow dogs have learned to take the subway to get around the city by themselves! It all seems like a great adventure — just the adventure JR has been looking for. That is, until the Metro Dogs of Moscow start to mysteriously disappear…
