With thousands of Sonoma County homes lost in the wildfires, many dog owners have found themselves unexpectedly in the market for a new home.

Buyers are looking for homes to accommodate their entire family including their beloved pets and the appropriate layout is a consideration.

Will your furry friend have enough yard and living space to roam around in? Will your pet be more comfortable in a carpeted home or are hard wood floors better for easy clean-up and reduced allergens? Does your pet get dirty easily and is there a garden faucet available for bathing?

As of Nov. 9, Sonoma County Animal Services have over 100 missing pets directly related to the fire, many are surely connected to displaced residents looking for a safe and secure place for their families and pets.

Consider these 10 Sonoma County homes with fenced in yards selling for under $800,000.
