Man Paddles His Way to Save a Stranded Puppy

Source: A paddle boarder out in Herne Bay off the Kent coast in England spotted a puppy stranded on a rock several hundred feet from shore and surrounded by water. The tide was coming in and the pup was just minutes away from being swept out to sea.

The man named Charlie Head filmed his rescue of the frightened, soaked Shih Tzu pup. As he paddled out to the dog he comments, "He's just sat out there like a little dude, wondering what to do. He definitely needs a rescue - in about 10 minutes he'll be completely covered in water."

Charlie gets the pup on his board and comforts him before paddling in to shore. He took the small dog to a nearby pub by the ocean front. A dog warden revealed the dog's name is Bam-Bam and is currently trying to contact the owner. A server at the pub said, "If they can't trace the owner I am going to keep him. Poor Bam-Bam." In the meantime, Bam Bam is safe at Lord Whisky Animal Sanctuary.
