The dog starts wagging his tail and seems to begin trusting the sailor as he hoists him off the rudder. 

The sailor then puts the dog on to the life ring before swimming back to his boat while holding it. 

The scared dog can be heard whimpering while the sailor slowly makes his way back to his boat. 

And one of the fellow sailors who is recording the rescue mission can be heard saying: ‘To the rescue man’. 

Once the sailor and dog make it back to the boat another man climbs down the ladder to help carry the dog up to safety.
