A dog found itself in dire need of rescue after going for a swim off the coast of New Jersey, and getting separated from its owner.

The Monmouth County Sheriff's Office deployed its Marine One unit over the July 4th weekend, as it set out give a 10-year-old Siberian Husky named Caiden a helping hand.

Officials said that the pup, named Caiden, swam about 1.5 miles off Union Beach into Raritan Bay off the Jersey coast, soon finding itself in distress. But fortunately for Caiden, the sheriff's officers were able to locate him and bring him on board.

The dog did not appear to be injured, aside from being tired from the nautical adventure. The animal was later reunited with its owner.
