A dog, who somehow wound up alone in the water off of Martha’s Vineyard, was rescued by boaters on Monday. According to WCVB News, The white and brown spaniel was first spotted by passengers on a ferry which was passing by, but the ferry was unable to help the wayward dog out of the water.
Thanks to the screams from concerned passengers, a nearby boater circled around to help. The people aboard the Lovely Day were able to motor up to the swimming dog and when they were close enough, the tired pooch was lifted out of the water and dried off.
Cheers erupted from the nearby ferry passengers who were hoping against hope that the soggy dog would be saved. The rescued dog was wearing a collar, but no identification tags – the crew of the Lovely Day delivered the dog to the port authority in Oak Bluffs.
Hopefully, the dog has an embedded microchip to help lead him (or her) back where he (or she) belongs.
