Firefighters crawl across frozen river to save Shih Tzu who was trapped on ice

We’re in middle of winter, and the freezing weather can be a danger to our pets. There have been some cases of dogs accidentally falling through ice, becoming helplessly trapped in the frigid water below.

Thankfully, there are firefighters willing to step up and help these animals get to warmth and safety. That was the case this week, after a fire crew came to the rescue of a Shih Tzu trapped on ice.

According to, the dog became trapped on the frozen Seneca River in Lysander, New York, after chasing geese onto the ice.

According to a Facebook post by the department, the responders had specialized rescue equipment provided by the Northwest and Jordan Fire Departments.

After crawling out to get the dog, the firefighters brought the Shih Tzu to safety. There was reportedly an ambulance waiting nearby, and it seems like this dog is going to be okay.

Thank you to these firefighters for going out of their way to save this little dog.
