A lost dog who ran away during Fourth of July fireworks returned to his family while they were speaking with a KAAL-TV reporter in Rochester.

Leo, a six-month-old pitbull, ran away during a fireworks display on July 4. The owners, Anthony and Destiny Gable, reportedly called friends and family looking for the dog, but did not succeed in finding him that night.

While speaking with Emily Pofahl, a reporter with KAAL/ABC 6, the next day, the two see Leo from the window. 

A neighbor had returned the dog after finding him and taking him around the neighborhood.

According to an article from Purina, dogs can perceive fireworks as a threat. It can trigger their fight-or-flight response, causing them to run away, hide or bark. 

Here's the full segment.
