Shih Tzu rescued from rising waters
For extreme rower Charlie Head, there are more important things than completing an extreme challenge. Like rescuing a puppy.
Head, 33, was completing a grueling 600-mile trip from Cornwall to London when he spotted a tiny puppy stranded on the rocks. He quickly abandoned his course and rowed over to rescue the puppy from the rising waters. Another ten minutes and the water would have swallowed him up.

"It's extraordinary. We only see this in TV movies," said veterinarian Philippe Michon. "He came back to life and without a scratch. It's rather miraculous."

The owner of record said that he had given the dog away, but police are continuing to investigate. The story
