A group of young people sailing off the coast of Florida found a floating dog and decided to save it.
When Bryn Crowell and his friends were sailing on a boat off the coast of Florida, something caught their attention. There was a strange object in the water, so they decided to slow down and turn around to see what it was.
Brin and his friends thought it was a hat that a tourist had lost from afar, but when they got closer, everything changed.
Brin said Dodo :
My first thought is: Wow, this hat looks like a dog! A second later I realized that it was a dog!
No one could explain how the little dog got to this place so far from the coast, but it was clear that it was fighting for its life.
Without hesitation, one of Brin’s friends decided to jump into the water, grabbed the dog, and carried it to the boat in safety.
Another friend of Brin recorded the exact moment of the rescue and decided to post it on social networks. The incident was so incredible that it quickly went viral.
The puppy was a little scared and shocked, but it was very lucky that it was found by a group of boaters.
It could be said that ше just escaped by swimming.
After checking the dog, the young people noticed that it had a collar with an identification number and information about its family. So they decided to call to inform the rescue of the dog, and in the middle of the phone conversation, they heard that people were crying, they were upset and stunned.
According to the information provided by the family of the dog named Zuko, they were on a boat that day and brought the dog with them. It was Zuko’s first voyage, so it was very excited and jumped every time a wave crashed into the boat.
Somehow the little dog fell overboard and its family didn’t notice, and they thought it was hiding on the boat.
After a few minutes of searching, they didn’t find it, so they decided to go back and explore the areas where they were swimming. Unfortunately, the search did not yield results, but Zuko had a second chance in life thanks to Brin and his friends.
Brin commented :
When we returned with Zuko, we saw its owners hugging it and crying.
Zuko’s family sent a thank-you message to their new heroes and told them about the difficult times they went through without their puppy. In addition, they added a photo where you can see that they bought a life jacket for Zuko, which will ensure its safety in the water.
Despite the fact that it was swimming in the ocean alone, Zuko was in excellent condition, and the vet only recommended that it drink a lot of water.
Zuko’s story probably could have had a different ending, but thanks to the bravery of Brin and his friends, it had a happy ending.
