THIS is the heartwarming moment a stranded dog was rescued after being found swimming in the Gulf of Thailand - an incredible 130 MILES from the shore.

 

Workers onboard an oil rig noticed the pooch’s head poking above the ripples as she paddled through the ocean on Friday.

 

It's understood the Aspin dog - named Boonrod (survivor) by her rescuers - fell from a fishing trawler, according to the Bangkok Post.

 

Offshore drillers called out to the exhausted mutt and she swam towards them, taking refuge among the rusty metal bars of the rig.

 

The workers then lowered a rope down to Boonrod and pulled her to safety. She stayed on the drilling platform for two nights while a special cage was welded and staff gave her food and water.
