When a dog named Monster fell off a shrimp boat, his owner thought she was gone for good — but days later got an unexpected miracle as the resilient dog made his way home by swimming to shore.
Keith “Kiwi” Soffes, a shrimp boat captain from San Leon, Texas, loves his dog Monster, who never leaves his side, accompanying him on his daily runs out on the water.
But one recent trip turned into heartbreak, after Monster fell overboard. While the dog was no stranger to the water, having accompanied Keith on the boat since she was a puppy, and it was a calm day, the dog was suddenly gone without a trace.
Keith searched everywhere, hoping she would turn up, but soon feared for the worst. “I lost the one thing in this world that I truly loved,” Keith wrote. “Totally heartbroken.”
Wow, what a miracle. We’re so glad Monster made it to shore safe and sound and reunite with her very worried owner. It’s clear these two love each other a lot and are overjoyed to be reunited.
