If you like watching footage of dolphins, then you’re in for a treat, but there seems to be someone even happier than you to see these beautiful cetaceans: meet Jack the Jack Russell.

Better than any man-made radar

This video shows Jack barking excitedly at his sea friends who are swimming near his owners’ boat. But Jack does a lot more than hop up and down and wag his tail furiously when he spots his friends!

Indeed, according to his owner: “Jack has “Dolphin-dar”... he can hear the clicks and squeals dolphins make from a ways off! Before I ever see a dorsal fin break the surface Jack knows which side of the boat they are on!!!”

A true sailor

While some dogs certainly feel uneasy on boats and some don’t even like the water, Jack is so comfortable on the sea that he may think he’s a dolphin himself! Of course, he’s been hanging out on the boat with his paw-rents since his puppyhood, so it’s practically his second home.
