Dog eats baby goats, survives on remote island

A pet Australian cattle dog swam to shore after going overboard

Australian cattle dog Sophie Tucker spent her life as a pampered house pet, but when the going got rough, showed mettle that could put her human counterparts on “Survivor” to shame.

The plucky pooch was separated from her owners when she fell overboard in choppy waters, but swam five miles to an island, surviving on a diet of wild goats for four months until miraculously being reunited with her family.

“She surprised us all,” ecstatic owner Jan Griffith told the National Australian Associated Press News Agency. “She was a house dog and look what’s she done, she’s swum over five nautical miles, she’s managed to live off the land all on her own. We wish she could talk, we really do.”

I was so happy to hear this story, my cousin Sean had an Australian Cattle Dog. Id highly reccomend the breed to anyone that can have a dog that sheds and has the time to take it for walks.

The smartest and most loyal dog I have ever met bar none, and Ive known quite a few dogs in my life.

And who doesnt want a dog thats half Dingo?
