Meet Rothstein – the seafaring bulldog with a passion for surfing.
The talented three-year-old dog has been surfing and swimming most days since he was a puppy and is a regular at the beach.
Rothstein’s owner John Garcia, 39, said: “Rothstein has been surfing for two years and he started when he was just one.
“We surf around five-days-a-week. We also run and swim almost daily to keep both of us healthy. He absolutely loves it and gets so excited when he is out at the water.
“He also gets so excited when he is at the beach and he sees his human friends surfing and immediately wants to join them.
“He is super energetic and fun-loving. We have such a special bond and total trust, which surfing has only amplified.”
John, from San Diego, California, USA, and Rothstein spend most of their time on the beaches of Del Mar.
