Recently, an Australian fisherman almost lost his dog while fishing.
Having a pet is an unforgettable experience, especially if you are 75 years old. You love them like your children and cannot imagine your life without them. Recently, an Australian fisherman almost lost his dog while fishing off the coast of Melbourne.
Alphonse Attard and his dog, Jack, were about a kilometer off the coast of Altona Beach when Attard noticed a leak in a fishing boat. The boat capsized early in the morning.
Attard was thrown into the sea. The poor man clung to the fishing boat, praying that someone would come to their aid. Luckily, Attard was spotted by two fishermen, Laurie Borg and his son Trever.
As Attard was carried back to shore, the 75-year-old began to worry about his dog, Jack. For almost eighteen years, the terrier was Attard’s pet, and the owner was worried about his safety.
The water police and the Alton Rescue Club were called back to find the dog. They capsized the boat, where the terrier was found sitting in the bow of the boat.
All the volunteers assumed that there was an air pocket, and the brave dog walked in the sea water for quite some time before he was rescued. Finally the volunteers rescued Jack and the terrier was reunited with his owner.
The owner was overjoyed and jumped up and down. Attard suspected the leak was caused by a faulty plug under the boat. The disaster did not deter the couple from boating. The next day, the daredevils went fishing again.
