It's unclear why the dog ventured out onto thin ice. Perhaps he was chasing a smaller animal whose weight the ice could support. Perhaps he was just going for a stroll.
Whatever the reason, he showed great willpower to hold himself up from drowning. Thanks to his might and the rescuers' speed and agility, this dog will have more adventures to come.
Don't take chances when it comes to your dog's safety. Keep your dog on a leash if you're anywhere near icy waters. And if an accident occurs, be sure to call 911 before you put yourself in danger, too.
