A few details have been gleaned about a lucky dog who was found two miles from shore in Tampa Bay, Fla., reported Wednesday's Tampa Bay Times.

On the morning of Jan. 2, the struggling dog was spotted miles from shore by Albert Darlington, a commercial crabber, who was able to pluck her from the water before she drowned from complete exhaustion.

After being brought back to shore, a microchip revealed the dog's name as "Baby," and the fact that she had been reported as missing years ago.

Today, more has been learned about "Baby."

For ten years, Baby was a treasured companion to Charlene Knotts of St. Petersburg.

Knotts passed away suddenly in Oct. and a roommate found her a new home via Craigslist. Just days after she went to her new home, she ran away...not to be found again until the day of her offshore rescue.

Since Baby's rescue, she has found yet another family to call her own and they have changed her name to "Gracie."

Gracie now lives with Kathy Klein and her husband, who learned about the dog after reading her amazing story in the Tampa Bay Times.

Exactly how Baby, or rather "Gracie," came to be so far offshore remains as a mystery, but today, she is safe, warm and loved by her new guardians.
