It has been a birthday tradition for these couples to go out boating, but they didn’t expect to see a little dog floating onshore. They were boating five miles away from Hernando beach until Bruce Knecht, one of the boaters, saw something floating in the sea.

All they thought it is a buoy, but they realized that it is moving!

So, they headed to this ‘buoy’ and get a closer look. And oh boy, they saw a little dog sticking up his nose above water wearing a tiny orange animal lifevest. The couple also said that if they weren’t near the vicinity about five to ten feet, they wouldn’t be able to see this struggling dog.“You just saw his little nose sticking up out of the water,” one of the boaters, Shawn Sahr, said. “If we weren’t as close as we were, within five to 10 feet, we wouldn’t have seen him.”Source: Fox 13 Tampa Bay

When Jagermeister saw the boat coming near him, he immediately starts paddling and swimming towards the boat.

As soon as Jagermeister saw a boat nearby, that was his cue that he’s being rescued and he’s alive! The rescuers, on the other hand, radioed and informed the Coast Guard that they have found a tiny dog floating on the choppy waves of the Gulf of Mexico near Hernando Beach.Source: Fox 13 Tampa Bay
