Whilst DOG-TOR STRANGE the Mystic Mutt and Sorcerer Supreme was trying to defend the Earth from Demonic forces, he knew he needed to enlist some help. using his Mutt-Magic he manipulated Prince Namutt, the Sub-mutt-rina and the Hounded Hulk to come to his aid. This team up for Hero Hounds managed to stop the Demonic hordes over running the Earth.
A few months later, Dog-Tor Strange again enlisted a reluctant Namutt and Hounded Hulk to help him stop another threat to the safely of the Earth. The heroes again defeated the enemy, however Both the Hounded Hulk and Prince Namutt informed Strange that this was the last time they would work with him or each other.
BUT the Mystic Mutt managed to convince them that together they could be a force of good, and therefore the DOG-FENDERS were born. This group of hero hounds was unlike other groups that had formed before. They had no family ties like the FUR-TASTIC FOUR, they did not share a common heritage like the X-MUTT and Unlike the AVENGING HOUNDS they definitely had no charter, rules, permanent Home or fixed roster. To tell the truth they all disliked each other, But Dog-Tor Strange provided the glue to bind these individuals together.
Not long after becoming the DOG-FENDERS a forth member joined their non group, this was the Silver Sniffer who at the time was still exiled on Earth.
Over the years the roster changed with Heroes coming and going all the time. Their unofficial meeting house was originally Dog-tor Strange's House in New Yorkie City. With the addition of a reformed Vill-hound The Bite-Hawk joining the merry gang, this brought the benefit of a new team member, who was very rich and could help finance the non-groups costs and provide them with a more permanent residence.
The Dog-defenders continued to function for many years with many heroes joining the team for periods of time. Some heroes came and went and came back, some visited and then left never to return. Here is a sample of some of the earliest members of the team.
Here we have the SILVER SNIFFER, POWER PUP, BITE HAWK, HELL CAT-CANINE, THE HOUNDED HULK, THE VALK-HAIRY, DOG-TOR STRANGE. PRINCE NAMUTT the SUB-MUTT- RINA AND THE SATANIC HOUND of HELL
