Wesley White was fishing and shooting photography down in Southern Belize at Thatch Caye Resort with Blue Horizon Belize when he noticed an abnormally skinny dog on a nearby Caye/Island. After realizing there was no one on the island to take care of the dog, he took matters into his own hands. He put the dog into his Kayak and took him back to the lodge at Thatch Caye, where he then fed the dog some food and got in touch with a vet on the mainland. The vet was able to run some blood tests and the dog’s health was stabilized. Wesley then had to return to the States but was able to get in contact with the Belize Human Society to set up an adoption for the dog named “Winston.” Check out the full video and photos below from Wesley’s rescue to the adoption and now one happy dog, fishing for trout with Wesley and the rest of the crew.
