This Dog Saw A Baby Dolphin In Danger And Rushed To Save It

Leia the dog is officially a life-saver. This summer, whilst on a walk along the beach in Wales, the young dog was fretting as she tried to direct her human's attention onto a baby dolphin, who was stranded on the water's surface.

Her human related the story:

 

I was taking photos of the fantastic scenery when I heard my dog barking at me from further down the beach … clearly she had found something!

To his total surprise, Leia had come across a poor baby dolphin beached on the pebbles and unable to swim back into the water. The man hurried to her and gently tried to push the young animal back towards the open sea. And all whilst filming the incredible incident.

Success! The baby dolphin was swimming in the sea once more. His saviour reported what followed on his YouTube post:

 

Stayed at the site for while after to make sure he didn't come back. Spoke to the coastguard once I had signal and they reported it to the science team. Think the little guy was lucky as there was nobody around for miles! 

 

The true heroine of the story is the brilliant Leia, without whom no one would have found the baby dolphin stuck on the shore.
