This dog has shown that practicing physical exercise daily allows her to get out of dangerous situations on occasion. It is indeed thanks to her endurance that she reached the bank safe and sound after several kilometers of swimming. Her master was devastated to have lost her and had to wait 5 long days before finding her.
Keith Soffes is a fisherman San León in the state of Texas to United States. He used to bring his female dog named Monster with him during his outings at sea. The young Monster has sea legs and gladly helps to retrieve shrimp. “She grabs the net and starts pulling with all her might to help me”confirmed Keith at People.
Unfortunately, on May 26, 2022, not everything went as planned. Keith positioned his nets offshore, but turning around, Monster was not there. “I thought to myself: where is she? It was in the middle of the bay in open water, about 7 kilometers from the mainland”has explained Keith. It was obvious that Monster had gone overboard.
The man was devastated to have lost his dog, but did not give up. “My heart fell. I couldn’t even speak. I took my GPS coordinates and said, we’ll find her.”told Keith.
However, despite spending hours scanning the horizon, the master did not find any trace of Monster. Upon returning to the dock, he posted a distress message on Facebook.
5 long days without news
Keith does not recover from the tragic loss of his faithful Monster. “5 days have passed… She couldn’t have swum that far”mentioned the downcast owner on social media.
However, a woman commented on seeing a dog matching the description of Monster in the city park. Keith was speechless and reunited with her beloved pooch. “I was crying so hard with joy and she was giving me so many kisses”told Keith.
