Dog overboard found 3km offshore
A fisherman will be reunited with his dog, which was rescued today after it fell overboard 3km off the coast in Port Phillip bay.
Victorian police today said the Coast Guard had sent a search and rescue team to look for the Jack Russell after receiving a call for help from its fisherman owner, earlier this morning.
The dog, Bundy, was later rescued by a group of recreational boaters who found it swimming about 3km from land.
The dog and its owner will be reunited at St Kilda marina later today.
