THAILAND (CNN) - You won’t believe this story of survival that unfolded in the gulf of Thailand.

Oil rig workers rescued a dog that was found swimming alone 135 miles offshore.

After spotting the exhausted pooch, workers used a rope to lift it to safety.

Workers nicknamed the dog “Boonrod,” which loosely translates to “Survivor.”

Boonrod was able to hitch a ride back to land on a nearby oil tanker.

He’s now in the care of vets in South Thailand, who say he’s “in good spirits.”

What’s not yet clear is how the little guy got so doggone far out to sea.
