Rory O'Connor - a tourist from Bellingham, Wash. - was kayaking and fishing near Siesta Key when he spotted a dog swimming about a half mile offshore in the blue water."I pulled him into the kayak and he was really scared," said O'Connor. "He was shaking a lot. Had a bunch of wounds on his leg and was bleeding." O'Connor captured the rescue on a video camera that he uses to record his fishing adventures.
O'Connor took the dog ashore. His sister, who was on the beach with her family, identified the canine as a Vizsla and suggested the dog might have a microchip. The family then took the dog to a nearby vet.
The dog did have a microchip, and the veterinarian's office contacted Chen's family - and learned about the accident. It's still a mystery how or why the dog ended up a mile from where the crash happened and in the water.
Poor baby. In this case the microchip came in handy
