Dolphins are intelligent and inquisitive mammals that have often been known to come to the rescue of humans and animals in times of trouble. They have a reputation for being fun-loving, but can also be protective and unpredictable. There are many stories of dolphins guiding ships through turbulent waters or defending humans from sharks.
This dolphin rescue involves a small tan terrier that fell unnoticed into the rough waters of a channel off Marco Island, Florida. The little dog had to fight to stay afloat when he was noticed by a pod of dolphins.
The dolphins swam toward the terrified dog and began to circle him, making a lot of noise. The commotion attracted the attention of a few people nearby who went to the edge of the canal to see what was going on. Fortunately, they saw the little dog floating desperately in the water with the dolphins circling him.
One of the dolphins was seen poking the exhausted dog in the nose to help it stay afloat and another dolphin was seen getting under the dog to help it stay afloat. The dolphins seemed to know what they needed to do to keep the dog alive and get the attention of people who could help rescue him from the deep water.
Bystanders quickly called the fire department. The firefighters who arrived rushed to rescue the helpless little dog from the rough waters that were sure to drown him.
The firefighters provided first aid and estimated that the poor little dog had been in the water for 15 long hours.
The lucky dog certainly owes his life to the group of dolphins that came to his rescue and had the intelligence to ask for help. Not to mention the brave firefighters who rushed to save him.
