DUDLEY might have only three legs but that doesn't hold him back from hitting the surf, says foster carer Marie Barnes of Wide Bay Animal Rescue.

Marie first discovered Dudley's talent when she took him to the beach with the other rescue pets.

"I usually take all the dogs to the beach and often get the stand up paddleboard out," she said.

"Straight away Dudley jumped on it and started surfing the waves."

"I couldn't get him out of the water or off the board."

Marie says the three-year-old labrador-cross would best suit someone with an active lifestyle who loves the beach.
