“Whether man or beast, our crews stand ready to answer the call for help, even if it means crawling through 200 feet of slurpee-like ice.”
That is what the U.S. Coast Guard of Great Lakes in Frankfort, Michigan posted in Facebook after their group protected a canine from the freezing waters between Lake Michigan and Betsie Lake on February 3, 2015.
The group had been at a gathering when the call came in that somebody had seen a canine dive into the frosty channel. They immediately assembled the conference to a near put on their defensive stuff and rush out to save the canine. Here is the emotional film of the canine’s salvage!

The Labrador Retriever was taken to Animal Welfare League of Benzie County and given a decent doctor’s report before she was subsequently rejoined with her owner.
