When you're a dog, no one tells you about the danger of walking on thin ice, but one dog in Swift Current, Canada, learned the lesson for himself this past Tuesday, November 28. After being left off his leash, the dog wandered out onto the ice and fell into the water. Fortunately, the nearby fire department acted quickly, and was able to save the pooch in a dramatic fashion:

Bravery at its best-you did a great job saving a beautiful dog/your kindness in a tough situation is probably what makes you a fireman-nice job!!— Susan O' Rourke (@Kelomee) December 5, 2017
I live in Australia 🇦🇺 I have never seen snow little own a lake frozen over, so this rescue is mind blowing to me what a brave fireman. That dog has a guardian angel. What a beautiful ending.. 🙂— Samantha Anderson (@Samanth93192327) December 5, 2017
STAY OFF THE ICE!!
Yesterday afternoon, our firefighters were busy at the creek, rescuing someone's pet. They allowed their dog to run off leash when it ventured our onto the ice and fell through. Quick action calling the fire department helped save their pet. Please keep your pets and children away from the Creek, the ice is thin and it is NOT safe.
Love this ❤️🐶. Thank you for showcasing this man's compassion and bravery.— Southern Charm (@GoesswhosTweetn) December 5, 2017
Fortunately, everyone made it home safe after the incident, but it could have been a lot worse. Be sure to keep your pets leashed, especially around frozen water. But things can still go wrong, and we can't always count on the heroes from our local fire departments to save the day.
Now that’s a wonderful human being. God Bless him. The dog looks fine.— Roz M (@PastelPink4Me) December 5, 2017
