Dog is rescued after it's found swimming 135 MILES out at sea: Oil rig workers pluck pooch from Gulf of Thailand - and have no idea how it got there

One lucky dog...

This is the incredible moment a dog was rescued after being found swimming in the Gulf of Thailand - 135 miles from shore.

Workers on an oil rig noticed the pooch's head poking out above the ripples as she paddled through the ocean last Friday.

They called out to the exhausted animal - which is between three and five years old - and she swam towards them, taking refuge among the rusty metal bars of the rig.

She was transferred on to a passing oil tanker and returned to shore to see a vet. Was deemed healthy and Khon Vitisak, who saved the dog, wants to adopt her.

My guess is that she fell off someone’s boat. Very lucky to hav survived.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals

Agreed on both counts

It angers me that this could happen, and it has before and will since (Yes, I'm assuming it fell off a boat).

I've also seen dogs on day craft wearing life preservers
