A Thai animal rescue group welcomed a dog who was rescued nearly 220 kilometers (136 miles) from shore Monday.

泰國一個動物救援團體週一迎接一隻在距離海岸近220公里(136英里)處獲救的狗兒。

The dog, named Boonrod - a Thai word which roughly translates to “the saved one” - was brought to shore for a health check after being found dehydrated and hungry by workers on an oil rig on Friday.

這隻狗名為「彭哈」——泰語的意思大致是「獲救者」——週五被一處石油平台上的工作人員發現脫水又飢餓,隨後被帶到岸邊做健康檢查。

Video from the rescue group Dog Smile House showed people greeting Boonrod on a dock in Hat Yai in Songkhla province, southern Thailand, showering him with pats and giving him a garland. Photos taken by oil rig workers showed him being brought up with a rope and given food and water before being transported to a boat, which brought him back to Hat Yai.

救援團體「狗狗微笑之家」的影片顯示,民眾在泰國南部宋卡府合艾市一處碼頭上歡迎彭哈,用拍拍牠來迎接,還給牠一圈花環。石油平台工作人員拍攝的照片顯示,把牠送上回合艾市的船隻以前,牠被一根繩子拉上來並獲得食物及飲水。

康復後,彭哈預計前往牠位於泰國東北部孔敬市的收養家庭。(路透)
