dog saved swimming

The dark brown Aspin was spotted by oil rig employees jabbing its head over the waves

Depleted mutt swam over to them and took shelter in the apparatus’ corroded metal bars

She was exchanged on to a passing oil tanker and came back to shore to see a vet

Was regarded sound and Khon Vitisak, who spared the canine, wants to take her with him

This is the mind-boggling minute a medium size dog was safeguarded in the wake of being discovered swimming in the Gulf of Thailand – 135 miles from shore.

Workers on an oil rig saw the pooch‘s head jabbing out over the swells as she paddled through the sea last Friday.

They shouted to the exhausted dog– which is somewhere in the range of three and five years of age – and she swam towards them, taking asylum among the corroded metal bars of the apparatus.

Workers at that point let a rope down to the dark brown colored Aspin hound and dismantled her to her safety.

She remained on the drilling stage for two evenings while an extraordinary pen was welded together and the staff gave her some food and water.

The canine was at long last lifted by crane on to another oil vessel going through the region yesterday. She was taken to vets in Songkhla, southern Thailand, today.

Oil rig employee Khon Vitisak, who spared the dog, said he doesn’t have an inkling how she came to be in the sea yet he might want to take her if no owner approaches.

Animal charity volunteers – who are presently thinking about the canine – don’t have a clue if she has an owner of if she was a stray.

It is conceivable she swam from the shore or boarded a vessel and later jump off.


Workers from the oil rig in the Gulf of Thailand pet the dog after they saved her but mystery surrounds how she got there

When she achieved the ship, employees nursed and fed the puppy back to wellbeing while they radioed for help and mentioned a tanker that was coming back to shore to make a trip and gather her.

She was sent to the animal Sanctuary Watchdog Thailand today who took her to be looked at by vets.

A representative for the sanctuary in a statement for Daily Mail said: ‘The boat arrived at 10 am and the dog was in good spirits. We took her to the vets to be checked and she was found to be healthy.

‘Everybody who played a part in co-coordinating the rescue has done a brilliant job.’

The happy dog has now been named Boonrod which in Thai signifies ‘making a spiritual donation for good luck in the future’.

Mr Vitisak stated: ‘We have checked on Boonrod again this evening and she is fine.
