Dog Swims with Dolphins | Animals Friendships | Love Nature

– [Announcer] People
come to the Florida Keys for the tropical climate
and fun in the sun, but if you want something extraordinary, this tour boat comes with a dog who has some interesting friends at sea. – The first time that Maya actually got in the water with the dolphins, the dolphins came up
and they approached her from way off in the distance, and I was a little unsure at that time. You know they’re big animals
out there in the wild. She started swimming towards them, her ears kind of perked up, and then she kind of
drew back a little bit, looked at me like mom, really? And then they kind of came up gently and they looked at her. It was like wow, I can’t
believe they came over to check her out like that. Wow, that is so cool. Look at her go. The curiosity of the dolphins
was fascinating to see, and I believe that was
the beginning of their kinship and their bond. – This is amazing. – Maya hangs out in the bow here, so she’ll go from side to side, depending on where they’re swimming to, and sometimes they actually
put their eye out of the water, when Maya’s around. I noticed that they
take that extra push out so that they can see. – [Woman] It looks like through time, that certain dolphins have developed more of a friendship with her, and that she kind of picks and chooses who she knows gonna hang out with her. – She really likes the young dolphins. They are the ones that
are the most playful, the ones that jump out the most, the ones that, they’re the most curious. – [Announcer] Golden
retrievers were originally bred to retrieve water fowl. They’re paws are webbed, which helps them be fast, strong swimmers. – [Woman] Loves the
water, loves the dolphins, they will swim up to
her, and sometimes under, and twist and turn around her. – Once she focused on one dolphin, there was another one behind it, and then she was like basically
spinning around in circles trying to figure out which
way the dolphins were going, so it’s kind of like monkey in the middle. – I hope to have Maya
with me for a long time into the future, coming out to the boat, and continuing to forge
those long term relationships with the dolphins out around
the waters of Key West. – She was raised on the ocean, she’s been coming on this
boat since she was a puppy so it’s part of her life, it’s what she knows, almost like other dogs are always
playing with other dogs, she plays with other dogs and dolphins. (guitar chord)

    I have no scientific proof to back me up, but I think dogs, and Dolphins somehow like each other. Possibly die, and become the other

    That's so cute.  That doggy is so cute.  And no I doubt the dolphins would let a shark near her.

  44. mysticoversoul says:

    That dude at 1:19 is adorable, cute and delicious.

  45. A J says:

    Until a shark gets to her, attracted to the erratic paddling motion of dogs. Not smart. I'd never do that to my babies.

  54. Jmichael Isbell says:

    Great film, thanks for posting. But one word of caution. My dog was also tethered while we were under way. He jumped out, and was being dragged, under water for a few moments before we cut the engine. Tethers show a lot on the ball, but boy oh boy, if no one had seen "Guineas" getting out of the boat, we would have drowned him, for sure. And we were going slow, I don't know how a dog might handle it if he bailed at high speed. Just saying, if it had not occurred to you they might bail. I must say it never entered my mind, and I about had a cow when he jumped.

  55. Paul Adams says:

    Maya unfortunately was taken by a Great White one day.

  56. Eren Jaeger says:

    He a Pirate.

  59. Anne Graffy says:

    Our Golden Retriever Riley does this. We live in New Port Richey FL on the coast. He never barks unless he sees Dolphin. Sometimes they come up to the boat like they hear him.

  60. CajunSweetTart says:

    Super cool!

  61. Sherry Roberts says:

    What a beautiful sight!!! Why not get your pup a life jacket and she can then swim more easily and have a lot more fun without becoming too tired!!!

  62. Just a sec says:

    Give the dog a life jacket. This way she can stay stationary and appreciate the dolphins more. It's safer and probably less stressful for the dog too..

  63. ClassyShows says:

    Oh my gosh that dog is so lucky

  64. Josephine Bennington says:

    Adapt a diver’s mask, or goggles, then teach her to look under the surface.

  65. Robert Thomas says:

    Seriously….are you people nuts????What if a shark comes and rips that pour dog apart??Go figure…Robert in California.

  66. Deflin Robertson says:

    hello water dogs land dog here

  67. Aan Arai says:

    Wonderful dog

  68. Cynthia Bernard says:

    Great video, but put a life jacket on her-no matter how good of a swimmer she is.

  69. CTXBikerGirl says:

    As cute as that is, you need to be very careful, make sure the dog doesn’t ingest the salt water. There was a dog that died here in Florida recently just hours after it had played at the beach. The cause of it’s death was the salt from the ocean water that he’d swallowed. Golden retrievers are also known to keep swimming even after they’ve exhausted themselves, so keep an eye on that as well. Otherwise, have fun and enjoy your furry fish-dog! Golden’s are the BEST!
