The animal swam toward the rig's platform and clung to it as team members tried to figure out how to save him, Vitisak Payalaw, an offshore planner for Chevron Thailand Exploration & Production, told NPR. The dog was pulled from the sea safely. Picking out the rig in a vast expanse of open ocean, he was also extremely lucky. However, it is unknown how long he was at sea for.

Once the dog was safe on the solid ground of the rig and dried off, the workers made sure to give her a warm welcome.

"We just saw its small head but if the ripples were bigger, I think we probably wouldn't have noticed him at all".

"If he lost his grip, it would be very hard to help him", Payalaw told CNN.

The workers then chose to throw a rope around the pooch and pull him up.

"His eyes were so sad".

Payalaw said Boonrod got naps and food, which started him regaining nourishment by the time they got him to dry land. He was shaking with fatigue. BBC reported that he looked exhausted, and may have fallen off a fishing trawler. "He didn't move much", Payalaw told CNN.

Animal charity volunteers who are now caring for the dog do not know if she has an owner or if she was a stray.

With help from animal charity Watchdog Thailand, it arrived at a veterinary clinic in Songkhla, southern Thailand on Monday.

The dog is now recovering in a shelter in Thialand's Songkla province, according to the charity. She is remarkably expected to make a full recovery from her ordeal.

Had the winds and waves not been calm that day, the workers may not have seen the dog, Payalaw said.

Can you blame him?
