He was just “a little dude wondering what the hell to do.”

Here’s a good reason to listen to your lifeguard’s tide warnings.

This dog was apparently unaware of the danger and got carried out into England’s North Sea. He fortunately found his footing, but got stuck on some rocks where, as his rescuer put it, he was “a little dude wondering what the hell to do.”

In order to make it out of his predicament, he had to trust the strange paddle boarder who came to his rescue. 

The story has a happy ending, and the dog was reunited with his family.
