“Shortly after, lookouts on CG24508 spotted movement on the calm waters and upon closer inspection saw a dog swimming towards the boat,” the Facebook post reported.

The crew immediately headed over toward the dog and helped him get back aboard to safety.

The Coast Guard shared a video of the moment when rescuers pulled the pup up onto their boat. In the clip, the dog paddles towards the boat before two guardsmen work together to haul her out of the water.

The crew inspected the exhausted dog and made sure there were no injuries that needed medical attention.

“​​The crew made way towards the distressed dog and hauled Myla on board. After a quick inspection to ensure no injuries, the exhausted pup was given VIP treatment by the crew and was eventually reunited with its owners. We want to congratulate Myla on being a good girl and an amazing doggie swimmer!” the post concluded.
