Rescue Dog Named Mermaid After Being Stranded on Sea Rocks

A dog has been named Sirena, meaning mermaid in English, after being rescued on Thursday, January 5, from rocks off the coast of Hualpen, Chile, the country’s navy said.

Footage released by the Chilean Navy shows climbers scaling the rock to reach Sirena, and bringing the dog back to shore in a dinghy.

Firefighters launched an initial search on Tuesday, which was made difficult due to conditions at sea, they said.

The local government said Thursday that Sirena’s condition was good and a group was working to find a home for her. Credit: Armada de Chile via Storyful
