Sometimes what works for people works for man's best friend.
"While our crew was out underway for a night patrol, we received a call for a dog in distress swimming off Fort Myers Beach/Bowditch Point," Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach wrote on Facebook.
The crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach safely pulled the dog on board their vessel.
"Thanks to the crew’s expertise in intercepting non-compliant vessels (NCV) and recovering a person in the water (PIW), our 'star' of the night was safely recovered and returned to her owner!" they added.
