Sea dog rescued from floating log off New Zealand coast

A dog looks like he must have been barking up the wrong tree when he was swept out to sea on a log. On Thursday the castaway canine was spotted standing on his makeshift raft by the crew of the Royal New Zealand Navy patrol in Smokehouse Bay, near Great Barrier Island.
A rescue mission was authorised and a crew of four were sent out to save the plucky pooch, who was found 30 miles off the coast of New Zealand’s North Island.
Lieutenant Norris told the New Zealand Herald: “There was significant debris in the area and on one large piece floating in the water was this poor, helpless dog. “I would hate to think how long he had been there.”
There were heavy storms in the area earlier in the week and rescuers believed he may have been washed out to sea during them. The good news is the story has a happy ending as the dog has been reunited with its owners
