Dog found swimming 136 miles from shore

Dog found swimming 136 miles from shore”

Oil workers about 135 miles off the coast of Thailand saw something in the water that shouldn't have been there: a exhausted dog, swimming.

"Boonrod" was rescued by workers on an oil rig after she was spotted paddling some 130 miles from shore on Friday.

The oil rig worker who saved the pooch said she is between 3 and 5 years old and now has "a lot of energy".

She was sent to the animal charity Watchdog Thailand today who took her to be checked over by vets.

The workers don't know how the dog ended up in the water so far from the coast, speculating that he may have fallen from a boat, Payalaw said.

"We just saw her small head", he wrote on Facebook.

After she made it onto the bars below the rig she didn't cry or bark at all.

The workers looked around for a way to help her up, and chose to use a rope to pull the dog to safety.

"When we first took her on board she was depressed and exhausted from being in the water for a long time". She was also dehydrated, according to Vitasak.

'When he gave her water and minerals her symptoms improved. The dog soon perked up and started to sit up and walk normally, he said.

Payalaw plans to adopt the dog when he returns to shore later this month. She stayed on the drilling platform for two nights while a special cage was welded and staff gave her food and water.

Video shows two of her rescuers lifting her onto the rig.

Boonrod was lifted by crane on to an oil vessel that was passing through the area on Sunday to be transported to a veterinary practice in southern Thailand.

"The boat arrived at 10am and the dog was in good spirits", the charity said.
