Loyal German Shepherd Swims 11 Hours To Save Her Owner After A Boating Accident

Dogs are one of the most loyal creatures in the world. If you’ve ever had a dog, I’m sure you know well how they always stick by your side. Especially when you are not having a great day, but this German Shephard by the name of Heidi takes the cake! After all, she swam for 11 hours to save her owner.

It was a fair-weathered day. So, Heidi’s 63-year-old owner had taken out his boat to Moreton Bay, Australia, on February 19, 2020. But tragedy struck! Because there was no fuel in the boat, it began sinking. That’s when Heidi swam to find any help she could. Luckily, a fisherman spotted the dog in the waters!
