Dog rescued 220 km from shore in the middle of the ocean

Tuesday, April 16th 2019, 5:50 pm - Good dog.

A Thai animal rescue group welcomed a dog who was rescued nearly 220km from shore Monday.

The dog, named Boonrod - a Thai word which roughly translates to "the saved one", was brought onto shore for a health check after being found dehydrated and hungry by workers on an oil rig last Friday.

Video from the rescue group Dog Smile House showed people greeting Boonrod on a dock in Hat Yai in Songkhla province, southern Thailand, showering him with pats and giving him a garland. Photos taken by oil rig workers showed him being brought up with a rope and given food and water before being transported to a boat, which brought him back to Hat Yai.

Boonrod is expected to go to his adoptive home in Khon Kaen in northeastern Thailand after he recovers.
