Man Rescues Dog From Drowning

Video Cover
Occurred on November 26, 2021 / Englewood, Florida, USA Info from Licensor: "I am an Instagrammer/musical artist that lives on a sailboat here in Englewood, Florida with my parrot Yoshi. While I was taking Yoshi out of his cage, I saw splashing out the window about 50 yards from my boat. When I went outside, I heard a lot of barking. My GoPro was luckily charged and sitting right there so I grabbed it, turned it on, and ran to my canoe. It took me what felt like 10 minutes to unhook my canoe and get over there and when I first got up to him he lunged for my hand in what I'd say is the most aggressive bite I've ever seen while he was treading water barely keeping his head above it I turned around and managed to get him off of a bunch of barnacle-encrusted 1-inch pipes he was clinging onto. His feet and paws were all cut up, and I don't know how long he was in the water, but I know I saved him. The owner's canoe was near a dock so I managed to keep the dog off me with a paddle in between us and he wanted to jump off the whole way to the shore. When I got there the owner's friend came out and he managed to get a rope around the dog. But the owner started accusing me over the phone of trying to get onto his boat, so I said hey, I got the whole thing on my GoPro, so he better come get his dog because there was a passing boat that had said they would call animal control for me. I was pretty angry so I just left once I made sure the dog was safe and wasn't going to jump or fall in again. I also told them they needed to get the dog some medical attention because barnacles can get infected and always are worse than you immediately see. I went back to my sailboat after that and haven't talked to the owner or found out if the animal control showed up."
