Coast Guard Finds Distressed Dog Swimming Out At Sea

A Coast Guard crew stationed off the Florida coast recently rescued a dog from being lost at sea.

The U.S. Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach crew was conducting an offshore training exercise during their night patrol, when “a call of a pup in distress,” came in. According to the military service’s Twitter, several crew members sprang into action, finding the dog who’d been lost at sea.

U.S. Coast Guard shared a video to their social media, and in it, you can see a dog paddling in the water as the rescuers draw closer.

After steering their watercraft in order to intercept the dog, two crew members then hoist the dog out of the water and into safety.

“How are you doing, buddy?” one crew member asks the dog. “You’re the best person I’ve ever rescued.”

The rescue crew then took a selfie with the dog before heading back towards shore.

That evening, the U.S. Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach wrote on Facebook, “What a Day! There is a first for everything. Thanks to the crew’s expertise in intercepting non-compliant vessels (NCV) and recovering a person in the water (PIW), our ‘star’ of the night was safely recovered and returned to her owner!”
