The Pound Puppies are a group of dogs whose goal is to find a loving family for a puppy in need. The group consists of Cooler, Nose Marie, Bright Eyes, Whopper, Howler, Beamer, Reflex, Violet Vanderfeller, Barkerville, Scrounger, and Louie. They are aided by Holly, a girl who possesses the gift of puppy power; Jeff and Tammy, who are the owners of Jeff and Tammy's Puppy and Kitty Pound; and Hairball and Charlemange, who are also known as the Pound Purries. Puppy Power allows humans with pure hearts to communicate with animals. The Pound Puppies' archenemy is Katrina Stoneheart, who is Holly's evil guardian.
In the TV Special, with Whopper absent, there are eight members. In the TV Series, there are five members of the Pound Puppies. In Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw, there are eight members. All together, plus seven new members, there are twenty members of the Pound Puppies.
