Foster pup’s hidden talent: Dive 13 feet, rescue rubber duck


See for instance USA Today, WTVR and KLTV

Tami Stanley fosters dogs for the Texas Labrador Retriever Rescue, and is fostering ‘Bunny,’ a brown lab.

While training her for adoption, Stanley discovered the dog not only loves the water, but can hold her breath under water.

“I happened to grab the toy and it was under the water and Bunny came swimming by and just went ‘bloop,’” said Stanley. “So then we put it further and I held it with my toe on the bottom. She went right down and got it!”

Bunny, who could hold her breath and dive, was soon diving from seven – to nine – and then even 13 feet deep.
