Introduction

Have you ever wondered what your pets do when you aren't around? Do you come home to find a pup has gotten into mischief and find yourself wondering exactly how Fido got into such trouble? Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey tells the story of a trio of family pets whose family is in the process of moving. The animals - Chance, Sassy, and Shadow - mistakenly believe they have been abandoned at a ranch, and decide to try and find their family. The adventure of the group leads them through the Sierra Nevada Mountains as they journey on their way home.

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey Dog Name Considerations

Because the majority of the cast of this movie are animals, it is easy to choose dog names based on the names of the characters. 

Chance is the lead character. He is an American Bulldog, and Chance narrates throughout the film. Another dog, Shadow, is the older, more level-headed of the two dogs. Shadow is a Golden Retriever. He is extremely loyal to his "boy," Peter. It is Shadow who starts the pups on their great journey because he believes that Peter would never leave him. Sassy is a Himalayan cat who is also a family pet; Sassy accompanies Shadow and Chance on their journey. Because of the two breeds portrayed in the film, the American Bulldog is well-suited to a name inspired by this film. In addition, Golden Retrievers will also be especially suited to a Homeward Bound-inspired name. Although Sassy in the film is a cat, her name is suited to a pup with a bit of a sassy attitude. 

Because the film takes place on a ranch (and then in the mountains), names suited to dogs you might find in those locations are also fitting. Ranchers often use cattle dogs to herd cows, so they are just the fit for a name inspired by this film.
