A group of friends were simply enjoying a day out at sea, when suddenly, their adventure turned into a rescue mission.

In October 2021, a group of friends in Florida took their boat to spend a day out at sea.

As they enjoyed the sun and each other’s company, they suddenly spotted something in the corner of their eye, and soon realised that it was a little dog!

Saved in the nick of time

Without hesitating for a single second, one of the men on the boat threw himself into the water. He swam out to the Jack Russell, grabbed him, and took him back to the boat where his friends lifted him up and placed him safely on the deck. 

Thankfully, the little dog had a collar with his owners’ phone number on it. Within minutes, he was reunited with his very worried owners. 

Preventing the worst

It turns out the poor pup had fallen off his owners’ boat without them noticing - and by the time they did, he had already drifted far off at sea.

This pup was SO lucky that this group of friends spotted him. He hasn’t sustained any injuries, but he HAS since gotten himself a nice little life jacket. He’s not planning on going for another swim any time soon, but if he does, he’ll be well protected!
