Saint Bernard Rescued From Ice
Dog’s tail frozen to ice
St Bernards have become famous for leading daring Alpine rescues but one 16-month-old dog needed rescuers of its own after its tail was frozen to the ice on a golf course pond.
Rescuers believe the dog fell through the ice on a pond at a local golf course. While the animal was able to pull itself out of the freezing water, its tail got stuck, stranding it in the middle of the pond.
Firefighters managed to get the dog free and was reported to be in good condition after being de-iced and warmed under a hair dryer at a local veterinarian’s office. Link
