Tang saved the captain of the ship by the captain putting a rope in Tang’s mouth and Tang jumped in the ocean and swam to shore. Tang found the rescue team and then the rescue team dragged the boat to land and Tang saved more than 90 people.
How They Train
In training dogs have to take survival tests and have to tow a boat 50 feet in deep water. They make the dogs tow it back to land. They teach them to swim alone.
