WATCH: Cool Welsh dog helps save baby dolphin

Leia is a beautiful dog whose sharp eyes spotted a struggling fellow mammal on the beach. Leia's owner recorded his rescue of the little guy.

Whilst attempting Bass fishing on a beach near Criccieth (close to the mouth of the River Dwyfor) I was taking photos of the fantastic scenery when I heard my dog barking at me from further down the beach....clearly she had found something! Managed to gently lift and guide this beached baby dolphin / juvenile harbour porpoise back out to sea. Stayed at the site for while after to make sure he didn't come back. Spoke to the coastguard once I had signal and they reported it to the science team. Think the little guy was lucky as there was nobody around for miles! And, if it wasn't for my dog barking at me I would have missed him too!
