Workers onboard an oil rig noticed the pooch�s head poking out above the ripples as she paddled through the ocean last Friday (12/04) afternoon. They called out to the exhausted mutt and she swam towards them, taking refuge among the rusty metal bars of the rig. Workers then lowered a rope down the brown Aspin dog and pulled her to safety. She stayed onboard the drilling platform for two nights while a special cage was welded together and staff gave her food and water. The dog was finally lifted by crane onto another oil vessel passing through the area yesterday (Sun) which delivered her to vets in Songkhla, southern Thailand, today (Mon). Oil rig worker, Khon Vitisak, who saved the pooch said he does not know how she came to be in the ocean but he would like to adopt her if no owner comes forward.
