Dog who fell off shrimp boat found alive days later after swimming six miles to shore.💖
Monster the Dog Fell Overboard in Galveston Bay.💖
The dog named Monster fell off a shrimp boat, his owner thought she was gone
But days later, a miracle happened: the resilient dog overcame everything to return to his owner
The canine — named Monster — regularly joins her owner Captain Keith “Kiwi” Soffes on his shrimp boat but fell overboard on a recent outing.
He said he hadn’t seen her for 10–15 minutes and realized something was amiss when she didn’t come running as he began pulling up the boat’s nets.
Poor dog – what an awful experience.🙏💖
Known to 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.
After searching his boat and calling other vessels in the area, Soffes spent hours looking for her but found no trace.
He shared the story online, continuing to hope that a monster would appear somewhere. He received a lot of support and prayers from everyone
Five days later , he said someone responded to him on Facebook, saying she’d seen a dog who looked like Monster at a local park.
I was crying so hard I couldn’t even talk. She was giving me so many kisses
He figures Monster likely swam 4–6 miles back to safety and credits her survival to all the time she’s spent swimming and on the boat.
Monster was discovered a few days after landing.💖
After so many days apart, they are very happy to be reunited.
He ensures that nothing happens after this trip, he plans to equip the dog with a life jacket on future trips.
It’s clear these two love each other a lot and are overjoyed to be reunited.
Praise Jesus for saving this precious dog.🙏💖
