This amazing story is so unreal it seems like a movie, but it actually happened.
A couple was fishing from their boat in the Gulf of Mexico as part of a regular birthday tradition when the miraculous happened. 5 miles off shore, Bruce Knecht saw what he thought was a buoy moving through the water.
They looked closer and saw that it was a tiny Jack Russel Terrier wearing an animal life vest. They spotted the tired dog by pure chance.
They contacted the Coast Guard and discovered the dog had been reported overboard 3 hours earlier.
The owner was overjoyed to be reunited with his best friend.
