Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco (film) The Seaver family has decided to take Chance, an American bulldog; Sassy, a Himalayan cat; and Shadow, a golden retriever, with them on a trip to the Canadian Rockies. When Chance escapes from his kennel at San Francisco’s airport, his friends Shadow and Sassy are forced to rescue him. Being from suburbia, they find themselves unprepared for the dangers that lurk in the perilous streets of San Francisco. Eluding determined dogcatchers and outsmarting alleyway mutts Ashcan and Pete, the three friends are aided in their journey by a gang of tough-talking strays led by the charismatic Riley. It is among this pack that Chance encounters the beautiful, streetwise Delilah, with whom he falls hopelessly in love. In their struggles to return home, the three pets learn some tough lessons about life, friendship, loyalty, and love. Directed by David R. Ellis. Released on March 8, 1996.
