A two-year-old Springer Spaniel noticed a baby dolphin struggling on the shore of  a beach. The concerned dog named Leia kept watch over the tiny animal until his owner noticed.

According to The Daily Post, Leia’s owner, Rich, thought it was a shark at first. It wasn’t until he noticed the dolphin’s blow hole that he realized a baby dolphin had washed ashore.

Rich says he gently nudged the animal into deeper water, until she swam away. He says he stayed on the beach for another hour, just to make sure she made it back okay.
