Dog found swimming 220 kilometres off Thailand

Dog found swimming 220 kilometres off Thailand

His rescuers managed to pull him up on the platform using a rope tied around his body and gave him water and food.

A worker on the Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production rig spotted the dog swimming toward the platform he was working on in the Gulf of Thailand.

The brown dog, identified as a male aspin (a mongrel dog native to the Philippines) around three to five years old, was discovered with its head poking out of the water while paddling through the ocean last Friday.

It was then lifted by crane to a passing oil vessel on April 14 before finally arriving to shore where animal charity workers were ready to collect her.

Gracia gave his players three days off following their semi-final exertions but he has no intention of rotating his squad for Premier League duty with seventh spot still up for grabs.


Oil workers spotted the dog, who they have named Boonrod, so they called her and she swam to the platform.

In the first photos Payalaw posted, the dog looks exhausted - "especially on his eyes" - and despondent. Payalaw declined to speculate, simply saying it is still a mystery.

Boonrod appeared to be steadily growing stronger, after eating and napping.

The dog was delivered by boat to the southern port of Songkhla and was declared in good health after being taken to the animal protection group Watchdog Thailand.

Government directs Apple and Google to delete the TikTok App
Apple did not respond to requests for comment, while TikTok did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Google's move. The company employs more than 250 people in India and had plans for more investment as it expands the business, it said.


Of all the things workers might see from an oil rig in the middle of nowhere, a dog swimming for its life might be pretty low on that list. InsideEdition.com's Stephanie Officer details how Boonrod was rescued.

The dog was later shown receiving a bath, playing with admirers and eating treats.

Payalaw said in the NPR report that seas began to get choppy and a little rough while he and other team members grabbed some rope to fashion a rescue device, and it took them about 15 minutes to get the pup aboard.
