When a black dog named Bob found himself trapped in a frozen lake, it took the brave actions of a local firefighter to get the pup back to safety.

Despite Bob's love for water, the icy conditions left him stranded on the frozen lake's surface and struggling to find his way out. 

Chilly rescue

The North Davis Fire District shared the heroic moment on Facebook, emphasising the dangers of icy terrains for both pets and children.

In a gripping video, Bob is seen grappling with the freezing waters, unable to escape. A firefighter named Logan, equipped with a safety rope tied around his waist, braves the chilly lake to rescue the distressed canine. 

As Logan manoeuvres through the snow-covered ground on his stomach, he reaches Bob. After entering the water, Logan skillfully pulls the black dog to safety over the lake's edge. 

Safe and sound

The grateful dog, now safe and sound, joyfully shakes off the cold water from his coat as he makes his way towards the other firefighters standing by on the bank, ensuring the safety of both Logan and Bob.

The post shared by the North Davis Fire District is a stark reminder for everyone to exercise caution around icy conditions, particularly when accompanied by pets or children.
