Dog Rescued After It Was Found Swimming 136 Miles From Shore
The pup is expected to be adopted once he recovers.
It’s not clear how a dog made its way to the middle of the ocean, but the lone pup was found swimming 136 miles off the coast of Thailand.
A group of workers on a Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production oil rig spotted the dog on Friday. They said he swam towards them and they managed to put a rope around him to pull him to safety, one of the workers said on Facebook.
He was then bathed, fed and named “Boonrad,” the Thai word for "survivor."
He spent two nights on the rig before being transported back to land where he was greeted with a warm welcome.
One of his rescuers hopes to adopt him when he recovers, according to reports.
