Dog who can dive 13 feet underwater needs a home.

A woman who rescues dogs got quite a surprise when she brought Bunny home from the pound.

She didn't know the depth of the dog's talents until they were playing in the pool.

Tami Stanley rescues labrador retrievers. She took Bunny in from a shelter with a bad case of mange.

She was all hairless here and no hair around her eyes and no hair on her ears.

But as Bunny healed, Atanley found the dog had a skill, choo!,  that was nothing to sneeze at.

It happened in the pool.

I happened to grab the toy and it was just here under the water and bunny came swimming by and just went bloop!

Bunny could hold her breathe and drive!

Hey, look at this! So then we put it further and I held it with my toe on the bottom. She went right down and got it! And then we just moved it out.

Soon, Bunny was diving to seven feet deep, then nine, then thirteen!

It was very exciting. I've worked with a lot of dogs and this was the only dog that has ever showed me this.

For a dog to go underwater that far, on her own, and to be able to hold her breath, you know that's a lot of pressure for dogs, so it's very unusual.

When you seen her do it when she comes out she immediately blows out this big wad of air.

Bunny's underwater video has drawn thousands of hits on Youtube and Stanley hopes the video will make a splash with someone who'll give Bunny a new home.

And to have a dog come out of the shelter that somebody else discarded with a really cool skill is very exciting for me personally.

It really is amazing!

Someone is going to love Bunny and Bunny is going to make a great dog and a lot of fun for somebody.
