Dog Rescued By Dolphins, A dog of 11 years would be lost forever if not for a little help from your friends at Marco Island, Florida A group of dolphins, to be exact. After Turbo disappeared Sunday night when his owner, Cindy Burnett, left the door open, Burnett said she and her children went looking for him – but had no luck.

“I searched and searched and called his name,” Burnett said the Florida RSW TV channel. “It took me through this street at least five or six times.” However, a close group of dolphins splashing maintained for hours, making enough noise so that the neighbors were alerted. When they went to investigate along the coast were found with Turbo, stranded in the waters of the channel.

Burnett told the television channel that had it not been for the dolphins, which could have taken much longer to find Turbo. “The lady here who took the channel said:” The dolphins were with him, ‘”he said. While the story may seem straight out of a Disney cartoon, is not the first time that dolphins have been credited with rescuing someone.

One of the most remarkable rescues occurred in 2007, when the surfer Todd Endris credited with bottlenose dolphins saving him from sharks by forming a protective ring around him, MSNBC reported at the time.

A dog that was trapped in a canal in Marco Island, Florida, is said to have been saved with the help of dolphins. Cindy Burnett said that his year old Doberman pinscher named Turbo had escaped from her garden after the door opened. I had sought for more than 15 hours when they were able to locate Turbo.

A neighbor who lived near the canal said she kept hearing a lot of splashing and come to discover that it was dolphins were around the dog.

The neighbor then jumped in and rescued the dog. “If not for all the dolphins splashing and would not have known that Turbo was there. The shallow waters but have risen and would have to tread water all night, I doubt it would have been able to do it,” said Burnett.
