Dog was found alive after it fell off a shrimp boat and swam six kilometers to shore.
Keith “Kiwi” Soffes is the captain of a shrimp boat in San Leon, Texas. He loves his dog Monster, who goes out on the water with him every day.
However, a recent expedition ended in tragedy when Monster went overboard. Despite the fact that the dog was no stranger to the sea, having joined Keith on the boat since she was a puppy, and that it was a quiet day, the dog vanished without a trace.
Keith looked everywhere for her, hoping to find her, but he became worried very quickly. Keith said, “I lost the one thing I really loved in this world. My heart is completely broken.”
Keith shared the story on social media in the hopes that Monster would show up somewhere. A lot of love and prayers were sent to him online.
Eventually five days after Monster went missing, he got great news. Monster was still alive and well, but he had been through a lot at sea.
FOX 26 in Houston says: ,,A few days after reaching the coast, the monster was found.´´ Keith was surprised when he heard her story. Monster made it out of Galveston Bay by swimming five to six kilometers to land.
He told FOX 26 that he told himself, “Man, she couldn’t have swum that far. That dog couldn’t have been able to swim that far.” Keith and Monster were happy to see each other again after being apart for a long time.
Keith said, “I was crying so hard that I couldn’t even say a word. She kissed me so much that I couldn’t breathe.”
