Dolphins are perceptive, intelligent creatures that are regularly praised for helping both humans and other animals in distress. They are known for being entertaining, but they can also be unpredictable and guarding. Numerous stories describe dolphins defending people from predators or guiding ships through hazardous seas.

They intervened in this situation to rescue a little cinnamon-brown terrier that got stranded in rough canal water near Marco Island, Florida. When a pod of dolphins came into view, the little dog must have had difficulty staying buoyant.

The dolphins approached the terrified dog by swimming up to it and began to circle and bark at it. Locals in the neighbourhood were curious about the commotion and made their way to the edge of the canal to investigate. Thankfully, they came upon the little dog struggling hysterically in the water while being surrounded by dolphins.
One of the dolphins was observed using his nose to poke the tired dog on the water’s surface, while another dolphin was seen swimming below the dolphin to help it remain afloat. The dolphins seemed to know just what to do to keep the dog alive and attract attention so that humans might assist in rescuing the canine from the deep ocean.
