Belgian Malinois Swims 6 Miles To Reunite With His Owners !!

Belgian Malinois is one of the smartest and strongest dog breeds around. That's the reason this breed is used for service work like search and rescue, personal protection, and tracking. 
A Belgian Malinois is also known for having high energy.
All these traits were contributing factors when a 10-month-old puppy found itself in an extremely dangerous situation while on a boating trip in Lake Michigan. Edward and Kristin Casas encountered mechanical problems while in the middle of the lake.

Kristin was at the top of the vessel, steering and her husband was in the bottom in the engine room trying to fix the problem. They both believed they left Rylee unattended for about ten minutes. The couple have been taking care of Rylee while their son Colin who owns it is away at college. The family made the heart-wrenching decision of calling, “mayday dog overboard,” over the radio with the hope of finding Rylee alive.
Fiedor posted on Facebook groups and pages in case people ran into the 10 month old puppy. She also notified local fishermen to be on the lookout. The next morning the couple received a call from a woman who said that she had seen Rylee at the plate river campground, which was around 16 miles far from the place Rylee was lost !! That means the dog swam 6 miles and walked around 10 miles. The couple brought Rylee’s food and toys with them while they marked their scent close to the truck they drove in. And it wasn't long Rylee came out of the woods and run to greet her humans. Now Rylee is safe and is living with his owners.
