In their South Carolina neighbourhood, fireworks started a few days before July 4.
When she heard fireworks, Rajah, a lab-Catahoula Leopard Dog mix, jumped outside and ran away.
Mary Lynn Whitacre and Ryan Washick, her owners, tried chasing her but were unsuccessful.
They spent a long time looking for her. They even shared it on Facebook and requested assistance in case they could locate her.
Rajah was most likely simply in the neighbourhood, near Heritage Lakes on Simpsonville and Woodruff Roads, according to Mary Lynn’s message. Her tag has phone numbers, they added, and she was microchipped.
The pair also drove around the neighbourhood to locate Rajah at the side of the road. They gave up after spending hours looking and returned home. Mary Lynn and Ryan had a difficult night and hoped the next day would be better.
At 3 AM, though, they received the biggest surprise. Their doorbell went off. Guess who they discovered? Rajah!

This incident is a helpful reminder for those who launch fireworks during celebrations today. In comparison to humans, animals have a different hearing abilities.
They typically have more acute hearing and hear sounds louder than others. They get scared by loud noises like gunfire or fireworks. It might potentially result in permanent hearing loss.
