‘Boonrod’ heads to new home in Khon Kaen

‘Boonrod’ heads to new home in Khon Kaen

MONDAY, April 29, 2019

Thailand’s pooch-of-the-moment “Boonrod” (meaning ‘survivor’ in Thai) has a new home in Khon Kaen.

Definitely Thailand’s most travelled dog, Boonrod was fished out of the water earlier this month when he was spotted swimming aimlessly 220 kilometres off the Songkhla coast by workers at an oil rig.
Vitisak, the proud new owner of Boonrod, is an offshore planner at Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production.
He met up with Boonrod on Saturday, the first time the two had met since the rescue on April 15 that made international headlines.
At the time, Boonrod was not a happy hound.

How he ended up in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand swimming around is a mystery, although the rig operators figure he must have fallen from a trawler.
But now Boonrod, who has been recuperating at Smile Dog House in Hat Yai since his rescue, is off to his new life in Khon Kaen, some 1,500km north of Songkhla.
Vitisak says he wants to encourage people to adopt a pet, rather than buying a new one.
