Myla is one lucky dog.
About 6:10 p.m. last Saturday, the crew of Coast Guard CG24508, a 24-foot shallow water boat out of Hatteras Inlet, were on routine law enforcement patrol in Pamlico Sound, North Carolina, when they heard an urgent radio call on Channel 16. A dog had fallen overboard and the owner’s couldn’t find her.
No more than five minutes later, the Coast Guard crew saw something moving in the water. It was Myla, the dog overboard, paddling over to reach them.
The Coast Guard posted on Facebook that “the crew made way towards the distressed dog and hauled Myla on board. After a quick inspection to ensure there were no injuries, the exhausted pup was given VIP treatment by the crew.”
A little later, Myla was reunited with her owners.
“We want to congratulate Myla on being a good girl and an amazing doggie swimmer,” the Coast Guard posted. See the video of the rescue below:
