So, Rylee, a 10-month-old Belgian Malinois puppy jumped off the family boat this past Sunday on Lake Michigan after the engine on the boat was having problems. The dog, a family member of the Cassas family of Michigan, proceeded to swim six miles to shore after the family mistakenly drove off after the boat was fixed.

Rylee is training to be a search and rescue dog. Sounds like Rylee was just getting that training in before dinner. Good Dog Rylee! You can come rescue me anytime.
