Chance is an American Bulldog and the deuteragonist in Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey and Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco. He was voiced by Michael J. Fox in both films who also portrayed Marty McFly in Back to the Future, Milo James Thatch in Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Scott Howard in Teen Wolf and Stuart Little in the film series. In the Japanese dub from the movie, he was voiced by Yasunori Matsumoto, who also voiced Dug in Disney's Up and Roddy St. James in Flushed Away.
Chance is a young, immature American bulldog owned by a young boy named Jamie who cares for him very deeply. Given his early life, he was abandoned as a puppy and sent to the pound. Fortunately, he was adopted by Jamie and given a home. His pet comrades are Shadow, a wise, old golden retriever and Sassy, a Himalayan cat who is constantly annoyed by Chance's antics and is usually tortured by him. Chance has a tendency to get himself (as well as his pet comrades) in trouble. He considers Shadow an old fusspot and calls him "old timer", but still has respect for him. His fear of going to "the bad place" seen in the second film leads him and the others to be left behind.
