The U.S. Coast Guard Station Hatteras Inlet shared a couple of photos and a video of rescuing a pet on May 14 (2022) that got lost at sea after jumping overboard.
U.S. Coast Guard members stationed in North Carolina said the dog was named Myla and they were called out to Pamlico Sound to try and find the pup.
The body of water is located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina which is 100 miles long and 25 miles wide in some places.
“Shortly after, lookouts on CG24508 spotted movement on the calm waters and upon closer inspection saw a dog swimming towards the boat,” the Facebook post said.
The crew said they made their way towards the distressed dog and hauled Myla onto the boat once they got close to her.
“After a quick inspection to ensure no injuries, the exhausted pup was given VIP treatment by the crew and was eventually reunited with its owners. We want to congratulate Myla on being a good girl and an amazing doggie swimmer!” the post concluded.
