Muskegon County’s Bravest get another well deserved notch in their rescue belts after being called to the edge of frosty White Lake in the town of Whitehall, MI, where a dog had fallen through the ice.
The rescuers came in to help staffers of Muskegon County Animal Control, who were ill-equipped to handle the situation but desperate to save the dog.
Donning the proper safety gear, three firefighters with the White Lake Fire Authority linked together to pull the dog nearly 100 yards to shore.
The dog, which had no collar, was turned over to Pound Buddies in Muskegon County. Its owner has not yet been located. If you recognize the dog or know the owner, authorities are asking you call 231-724-6500.
According to the White Lake Fire Authority, Wednesday’s water rescue was their 1,000th alarm for 2016.
