He was found swimming more than 200 kilometers from the mainland. Those who rescued him could not believe what they were seeing.
Workers on an oil rig began to watch as something approached them. At first they did not know what it was coming towards them, but they finally discovered it was a dog.
The shivering animal then managed to cling to a pole on the platform and could be seen looking up as workers on the oil rig devised a rescue plan.
The employees managed to pull him to a secure area with a rope tied to the body, they fed him and gave him water to drink.
“If the waves had been strong, we wouldn’t have seen him,” Vitisak Payalaw, of Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production’s oil drilling team said.
The pooch was believed to have fallen into the sea from a fishing trawler, the Bangkok Post reported. He has now been named “Boonrod” which in Thai means “making a spiritual donation for good luck in the future.”
Although they welcomed him with open arms, they made the decision to hand him over to a foundation in Thailand to take over.
“I hope to adopt him as a pet,” Vitisak told ViralPress. “I am looking forward to spending many happy years together with him.”
