Dolphin Saves Dobermann

An 11-year-old Doberman trapped for more than 15 hours in a canal in Marco Island, Florida USA owes his life to a dolphin that splashed and caused a fuss until a neighbour came to investigate.

Turbo the Dobermann, strayed from his home and garden and is thought to have fallen into the canal during the night.  His owner searched for him but was only reunited when the police received a call from a neighbour who said she had rescued a dog from the canal after she heard a dolphin making a lot of noise.  Turbo was found shivering and dehydrated, stranded on a sandbank at low tide and couldn’t climb out due to the high walls of the canal.  He is now back with his owner and his Dobermann sister, Porsche.
