Only problem, the pets escape from the airport while being put in the cargo area of the plane. Now their family is in Canada and the pets are all alone in San Fransisco. They meet scruffy bully dogs and a gang of rebel dogs all abandoned and have started their own group. Also looking for them is a "Blood Red Van" driven by bumbling dog catchers. Also Chance meets a girl dog and it's love at first bite. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Trivia

When Sassy runs up the stairs where she startles Mr. Seaver into tossing the laundry he is carrying. Chance ends up with underwear on his head and after shaking it free proceeds to chase Sassy into the yard. In the yard, on top of a small rise, is a child's hide and seek tunnel where Sassy takes refuge. The incorrigible Chance pushes the tunnel down the incline just to create mischief and we see Sassy running inside as if in an exercise wheel. When the tunnel stops rolling, we see Sassy emerge and stagger around, dizzy from the ride. This scene was shot in cuts. For the chase shots, the dog and cat were very comfortable working together and had a long pre-training period. Chance was given voice commands to nudge the tunnel down the slope with food as a reward. For the segment where the cat is inside, the tunnel was rolled gently and the cat walked forward as it rolled. No cat was inside when the tunnel was rolling fast. When the cat emerges, it is from a slow rocking tunnel controlled by the trainer who also used an undetectable waistband on the cat made of monofilament, which he pulled gently, making it appear as if the cat was dizzy.

Goofs

Chance is obviously played by a different dog in this film than the first one. Most noticeable is the dog has more tan spots on his neck and shoulders. See more »
