Dog is rescued after it's found swimming 135 MILES out at sea (Watch)

While working 135 miles off the coast of Thailand, workers on an oil rig spotted something unexpected in the calm water below: a brown dog.

They had no idea how long she had been paddling in the water, or how she even got so far away from land, but they did know that they wanted to save the pup. Someone grabbed a rope and lowered it down to the exhausted dog, who was easily pulled up.

The workers gave the dog fresh water and food, a bath, and a name: “Boonrod,” Thai for “survivor.” Boonrod spent two nights on the rig before being transferred on Sunday to an oil vessel that deposited her back on land Monday. Boonrod has since received a clean bill of health from a vet, and one of the oil rig workers hopes to be able to adopt her.
