Dog helps rescue stranded sea turtle in Plymouth

A sea turtle was rescued after becoming stranded in Plymouth. 

A large dog is being credited with saving the turtle’s life. 

Veda the dog was spending the day at the beach with her owner when she spotted the turtle. 

Veda found a loggerhead sea turtle washed up on shore, stranded and struggling to move. 

Veda’s owner, Leah, contacted a marine biologist she know who was able to send a rescue crew to pick it up and bring it to the New England Aquarium in Quincy. 

Aquarium workers said Veda spotted the turtle in the nick of time. 

Veda is a rescue dog, which Leah said gave her the instincts to save the turtle’s life. 

The turtle is now doing well.
