Missing Dog Turns Up At 3am And Rings Doorbell To Get Let In

Normally you'd want to sneak in when getting home after a night of debauchery - but not this pooch, who was caught ringing her owner's doorbell at 3am. Watch the pup's late night arrival below:

Mary Lynn, from Greenville, South Carolina, USA, was devastated to find her pup Rajah had gone missing.

The 23-year-old drove around the neighbourhood and posted on Facebook about their missing 18-month-old pooch, only for Rajah to ring the doorbell when she returned home in the early hours.

The dog had been scared by fireworks that were being set off in the area and had scarpered.

Lynn said: "She was in the backyard with our other dog and our neighbour started shooting off fireworks and I knew she'd be scared.

The stricken Lynn and her husband Ryan recruited others in the search and even took to social media in a bid to find out where the pup might've gone.

Mary Lynn, who works in data entry, added: "My husband came home and was driving around looking for her.

"We were ready to call all the shelters and she just showed up and rang the doorbell."

As the clip shows, Rajah returned seven hours later and seemed perfectly OK. She wasn't even embarrassed about being a dirty stop out, instead jumping up and sticking her face into the doorbell and camera.

"I don't even know how she knew how to do that, I've never shown her how," her relieved owner said.

"She doesn't go out in the front yard, except to the car, so she's never seen us use the doorbell.

"Ryan was up waiting around to see if she'd pop up. He saw her on the porch, and he ran off and got her."

Lynn continued: "She thought she was in so much trouble and she was sad and sulking, but we were like 'we're just happy you're back'.

"It was hilarious, and we couldn't stop laughing.

"She had thorns on her and seemed to have rolled in poop.

"So, it seems like she had a great time."

While this is a tale that once again reminds us of how dangerous setting off fireworks can be for pets and animals, we're glad that on this occasion at least Rajah managed to turn a negative into a positive and have a great night out on the town.
