Twenty years in the future, an outbreak of canine influenza spreads throughout Japan including the (fictitious) city of Megasaki with the risk of becoming contagious to humans. The city’s authoritarian mayor, Kenji Kobayashi, ratifies an official decree banishing all dogs to Trash Island, which is immediately approved despite the insistence of Professor Watanabe, the mayor’s political opponent, who states he is close to creating a cure. The first deported canine is a white and black-spotted dog named Spots Kobayashi, who served as the bodyguard dog of 12-year-old orphan Atari Kobayashi, the mayor’s distant nephew and ward. In this universe, dogs can apparently understand humans, but not vice versa, and none of the Japanese dialogue spoken by human characters is translated in the movie except through an interpreter or occasional subtitles.

Six months later, Atari hijacks a plane and flies it to Trash Island (now nicknamed “Isle of Dogs”) to search for Spots. After crash-landing, Atari is rescued by a dog pack ostensibly led by an all-black canine named Chief, a lifelong stray. With their help, Atari first finds a locked cage that apparently contains Spots’ skeleton, but learns that it is not him. They then fend off a rescue team sent by Kobayashi to retrieve Atari. Atari decides to continue his search for Spots, and the pack decides to help him. Chief initially declines, but is then convinced by Nutmeg, a female ex-show dog, to help the boy out of obligation.
