The Coast Guard Station in Fort Myers Beach was in for quite a surprise this week when they rescued a dog from treading water off the coast.

In a Facebook post, the station said their crew was out underway for a night patrol when they received a call for a dog in distress swimming off Fort Myers Beach.

"Thanks to the crew’s expertise in intercepting non-compliant vessels... our “star” of the night was safely recovered and returned to her owner," the post says

Great job guys!
