It breaks our hearts when we hear that a dog has gone missing so we were delighted to see this one reunited with its owners in such a clever way!
Watch as this dog rings her owner's doorbell at 3am to be let in. Rajah disappeared from her home for more than seven hours after being scared by fireworks.
Owner Mary Lynn, 23, drove around the neighbourhood and posted on Facebook about her missing 18-month-old pooch, only for Rajah to ring her doorbell when she returned home in the early hours.
Mary Lynn, from Greenville, South Carolina, USA, said: “She was in the backyard with our other dog and our neighbour started shooting off fireworks and I knew she’d be scared. I went to the backyard – and she was gone.”
Mary Lynn and her husband Ryan looked for Rajah, recruited others in the search and even created a Facebook post about the missing rescue dog.

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.”
Rajah returned home at 3am, 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,” Mary Lynn 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.”
When Rajah returned, she was afraid she’d be in trouble, but the family was just happy to have their hound back.
“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,’” Mary Lynn said. “It was hilarious, and we couldn’t stop laughing.”
Though the husband and wife drove around for hours looking for Rajah, Mary Lynn added that they have no idea where she spent her missing hours.
“She had thorns on her and seemed to have rolled in poop,” she said. “So it seems like she had a great time.”
