Dolphins save terrified little dog from drowning in a Florida canal

Dolphins are known for their intelligence and are also thought to be man’s remote ancestors. They have often been credited with coming to the rescue of humans and animals during times of trouble. There are many stories about dolphins leading ships out of turbulent waters or defending humans from sharks. This dolphin rescue involves a small cinnamon-brown terrier that fell unnoticed into the rough waters.

On Marco Island Florida, a group of dolphins came to the aid of a lost dog that had fallen into a canal and couldn’t get out. The dog barked attention to some people nearby who went to the canal’s edge to see what was going on. Luckily they saw the little dog desperately floating in the water with the dolphins circling it.

The dolphins seemed to sense what they needed to do to help keep the dog alive and also grab the attention of people who could help rescue the dog from the deep water. One of the dolphins was seen nudging the exhausted dog with his nose to help keep it on the water’s surface and another dolphin was seen getting under the dolphin to help it stay afloat.

The bystanders quickly called the fire department. The firemen that arrived rushed in to rescue the helpless little dog from the rough waters that were surely going to cause it to drown. The firemen provided first aid and estimated that the poor little thing had been in the water for 15 long hours.

The lucky dog certainly owes its life to the pod of dolphins that came to its rescue and had the intelligence to ask for help. Not to mention the brave firemen who rushed in to save it.

More infor: Although Dolphins may not have exactly helped save the dog in this particular incident, there are few reports that they do show concern towards fellow species in distress, including humans. The picture shown in the message actually belongs to a real story of friendship between a Dog and Dolphin that is depicted in the video above. The dolphin teaches the dog how to surf and enjoy the waves. Of course, the animals can certainly be trained to be together, but it is still an amazing treat to watch those different species together – with that intimacy.
