Dog Rescued at Sea

Posted: Updated:

Her name is "Baby." it says so right on her rhinestone collar and little pink bone tag. And she's been through quite an ordeal

Basile says: "On the horizon they could see just her nose sticking out of the water."

A fisherman spotted her off-shore and rescued her. Then he pulled into the Saint Pete docks Thursday morning where Anthony Basile was paying his dock fee.

Basile says: "I put towels on her. Warm towels on her; put the heat on in the boat. She shook for ten hours straight."

Basile knew the little dog needed help. She was cold and terrified.

Basile says: "I would just pet her and feed her by hand, and give her water. It took all night."

But now she trusts him, and won't let him out of her sight. A scan revealed a microchip, but the number doesn't work. But Basile can't help but get a little emotional.

Basile says: It's sad...the dog's lost."

So, for now. He'll keep her... Hoping to find baby's real mom and dad.

Basile says: "Somebody out there's looking for her."
