This is the heartwarming moment a stranded dog was rescued after being found swimming in the Gulf of Thailand – 130 miles from the shore.

Oil rig worker, Khon Vitisak, who saved the dog said he does not know how she came to be in the ocean but he would like to adopt her if no owner comes forward.

He said: We found her trying to swim towards our rig, which is about 220km from the shore. Thankfully the sea was quite still because the wind was calm.

We just saw her small head but if the ripples were bigger, I think we probably wouldnt have noticed her at all.

After she made it onto the bars below the rig she didnt cry or bark at all. We looked for a way to help her and in the end, decided to use the rope to tie around her body to lift her up.

When we first took her onboard her she was depressed and tired from being in the water for a long time. She had lost her body water.

When he gave her water and minerals her symptoms improved. She started sitting up and walking normally.

Animal charity volunteers who are now caring for the dog do not know if she has an owner of if she was a stray. It is possible she swam from the shore or boarded a boat then leapt off.

Once she reached the rig, workers nursed the dog back to health while they waited radioed for help and requested a tanker that was returning to shore to stop by and collect her.
