Dog swims 6 miles, walks another 12 to reunite with family

Rylee, a 10-month-old Belgian Malinois, was reunited with his family after falling out of a boat. A dog swam more than 6 miles and walked a dozen more to find his family after falling overboard into Lake Michigan. Edward Casas was boating on the lake with his wife, Kristin, and the family dog, a 10-month-old Belgian Malinois named Rylee. Casas tells ABC News Rylee went overboard while he was in the engine room trying to figure out a mechanical problem with the boat and his wife was steering.

Casas says he sent out a mayday call on the radio and was connected to a volunteer group that searches for lost dogs. The next morning, someone spotted Rylee going into a nearby campground. Edward Casas says there was a lot of sobbing and hugging when the family was reunited with him.

One tiny Chihuahua is raising thousands of dollars for Foster Dogs Inc!

Chloe Kardoggian is a senior Chihuahua who promotes dog adoption and fostering, and is a big supporter of our Fospice program. Thanks to Chloe and her mama Dorie, PetSmart sponsored a social media fundraiser for Fospice, to save more terminally ill and geriatric shelter dogs. You can help by commenting on one of Chloe’s kissing-booth photos on Instagram with a bunch of kissy-face emojis. She’s hoping to raise $5,000 to continue saving Fospice dogs throughout the year.
