14-year-old lab swims 9 miles to find owner

MIAMI, Fl. – A South Florida dog went on quite a journey Monday.

The 14-year-old black lab, named Fergie, swam some 9 miles between Coral Gables and Biscayne Bay.

Fergie’s owner says the dog likely had separation anxiety and entered the water near their home in hopes of finding her owner.

She was actually spotted by a resident who called 911 to report the middle aged dog swimming in the middle of the bay.
