There are a number of circumstances that could result in a dog being homeless; however, in the United States, the Fourth of July is known to be a nightmarish occasion for animals owing to the use of fireworks, and many of them go missing as a result.
To their good fortune, a party of kayakers located one of these dogs. They were successful in locating a lost puppy in time and transporting her back to her home in a safe manner.
On the evening of the Fourth of July, many households make an effort to lull their pets to sleep by making soothing noises for them, but these efforts are not enough. The loud explosions caused the dog living in one house to become so afraid that she decided to run away from her home in order to find safety elsewhere.
Unfortunately, when animals are frightened, they can sometimes lose their sense of direction; as a result, the dog went missing for a few days before being discovered by some kayakers.
On July 9, a group of kayaks decided to embark on a trek down the Chariton River located close to Centerville in Iowa. Little did they know what was in store for them along the way. As they were traveling along the river and taking in the view, they came across a nervous dog on the bank that seemed to be in need of assistance and appeared to be lost.
Immediately after seeing that the dog required immediate aid in order to be rescued and extricated from this predicament, everyone’s attention was drawn to the animal.
Reportedly, Shakira Sias, one of the kayakers, told KCCI the following:
If we hadn’t been able to pull her from the river fast enough, we never would have been able to pull her off of that bank. Due to the fact that the waters surge to such a great level, she would have been carried away by the river.
They were able to get closer and discovered that the nervous dog was a beautiful boxer named Ethyl who was 10 years old and was wearing a collar.
Because the dog wore an identification tag, the people who came to its rescue were able to get in touch with Ethyl’s family and find out that the dog had been gone for a total of six days.
On July 3, the dog ran away after being frightened by the fireworks and they haven’t seen or heard from her since then. They have no idea where she is. To everyone’s relief, the band of daredevil explorers arrived just in time to save and assist the priceless ethyl.
A member of the group by the name of Jessica Rose came to the conclusion that the incredible rescue of Ethyl should be videotaped and then posted on her TikTok account. In the video, Jessica can be heard commenting that Ethyl appeared exhausted and was covered in ticks when they found her. She also mentioned that Ethyl was afraid when they found her.
Cheetos were all the kayakers could offer him to satisfy his hunger, and they also provided him with some water so that he would not become dehydrated. He was extremely hungry.
In spite of the precarious situation that Ethyl found herself in, the dog calmly allowed herself to climb aboard a kayak and start working on her rescue mission. It appeared as though she understood that assistance was being provided to her and that, after enduring such a terrifying ordeal, she would soon be returning to her home.
