Boonrod, the dog rescued this week from an oil rig the middle of the Gulf of Thailand, can now show off his own Facebook page with more than 6,000 followers.

Launched just yesterday, Boonrod บุญรอดหมาอ่าวไทย (Boonrod Gulf of Thailand dog), has Facebook user Vitisak Payalaw serving as an administrator.

The rescue of the tan-coloured dog, named Boonrod (“Survivor” in Thai) by oil rig workers, hit both domestic and international headlines after he was fished out of the gulf last Friday by Chevron rig workers 220 kilometres from the shore.

Boonrod recovering and meeting a few new friends

They spotted his head bobbing between the waves. How he got there and how long he had been lost at sea remains a mystery.

Boonrod was brought back to the Songkhla province to be under a vet’s care and is said to be recovering well. His sad eyes, clearly visible exhaustion and quiet appearance pulled at the hearts of many who followed the rescue.

Boonrod will enjoy a new life, as the Chevron worker who rescued him has decided to adopt him. His Facebook page is now full of drawings and paintings of him made by his followers. Boonrod has been reported as being a girl dog in past articles but Boonrod is definitely a happy boy!
