We’ve posted so many videos of dogs caring for other animals that this one is not surprising, but it sure is unique. When Leila was nosing around on the beach in Wales, she found a baby dolphin who needed help, so Leila made sure that she got the word out. I’ll let the dog’s owner tell the story:
Whilst attempting Bass fishing on a beach near Criccieth (close to the mouth of the River Dwyfor) 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!
Managed to gently lift and guide this beached baby dolphin / juvenile harbour porpoise back out to sea.
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!
And, if it wasn’t for my dog barking at me I would have missed him too!
Great job, Leila!
