A dog stranded at sea as been rescued thanks to a quick thinking Coast Guard crew.

A crew in Florida was on a night patrol when they received a call about a dog apparently in distress while swimming off the coast near Fort Myers Beach.

Footage posted by the US Coast Guard shows the boat pulling up alongside the dog, while the crew gently lift him aboard.

“Come here pup,” one member of the crew is heard saying.

“Where are you going?”

Another adds: “You’re the person I’ve ever rescued.”

The dog was taken ashore and reunited with its family, according to the Coast Guard.

There was no word on how the dog ended up in the water in the first place.
