The Pit Bull called “The Beast” isn’t as scary as she says it is. She is a lover of being around water, especially when around her human, Kieth Soffes. Monster loves to make daily trips out of San Leon, Texas, on her human shrimp boat.
However, even the strongest swimmers get into trouble at times. One day, Monster fell off the boat when Soffes wasn’t paying attention. He didn’t know where his dog was for 5 days, but then he learned that the brave Pit Bull had gone on a rather interesting adventure.
Falling off the board
One day, when Soffes and Monster were on the shrimp boat, Monster disappeared. By the time Soffes realized she wasn’t on the boat, he was five miles from shore. He knew she must have fallen, but he didn’t see her in the water.
Soffes searched the shore for hours, but he could not find his beloved puppy. So Texas residents turned to Facebook to ask others to keep an eye on Monster.
“I lost the only thing in the world that I truly loved. My best friend. Monster dog. We don’t really know what happened. We think she fell off the boat on a calm day…she’s been on the boat her whole life since she was a puppy,” Soffes wrote. “I’ve searched and searched…hopefully someone finds her. We’ve been around marker number 71. If anyone has heard of her, please contact me. Totally sad. ”
Five days passed without a trace, but then a woman reached out to Soffes. She said she saw a dog that looked like a Monster at a park. Considering how far the park was from where the boat had come, Soffes thought that was unlikely. But, of course, he went there to find the dog.
An unbelievable journey
Sure enough, Monster was found in a trailer park near the place the woman mentioned. A man found Monster and tied her to his trailer next to his other dog. The monster may have swam several miles to reach that location.
“I cried so much, I couldn’t even talk. She gave me a lot of kisses,” said Soffes. “I think her swimming every day saved her life. It’s just that she’s on the boat, used to the water. ”
Monster’s fatigue is understandable, but other than that, she seems to be doing well. Soffes says that from now on, he will keep her life jacket and a device that tracks her when they hang out on the boat.
