Fishermen work hard. They are experienced in how the waves, water, and sky work, but there are sometimes matters that are out of their control. Their job isn’t easy. They must maintain their calm in the face of big storms. Their response to stressful situations can often mean the difference between life and death.

One fisherman in Australia dealt with this firsthand. Read on to learn how his story ended.

It was a usual day on his boat for this local fisherman and his dog, Jack. But matters changed quickly when the boat carrying the seaman and dog capsized. The poor dog owner believed his dog was lost forever.

What a terrible feeling to have, thinking your dog, your faithful companion, was lost to the sea.

However, there is a happy ending to this story that could cause the most stoic among us to shed a tear.

Just when it looked like all hope was lost, the fisherman saw the cops towing his boat to the dock. That’s when he received the most wonderful and lovely of surprises – his buddy Jack was not only alive, but unharmed. It turns out Jack didn’t fall overboard when the boat capsized! He had clung onto the vessel and was doing just fine.

This clip says it all as the happy fisherman and pooch are reunited. It’s rare to see a grown man jump for joy, and when it happens it’s a sight to behold!


We’re so relieved and happy for Jack and his owner. This adventure has only served to strengthen their bond even more.
