A 70-pound golden retriever fell through ice today on the Reeds Mill Pond in Kingston, but it was rescued quickly by Kingston Fire Department officials.
The call came in at about 2:50 p.m. When firefighters arrived on scene the dog, Shadow, was trapped in the water with his head floating above. His owner was on the ice as well.
Two firefighters in ice suits were able to go in and rescue the dog. They handed the dog over to Debra Mueller of Animal Control.
“He was pretty wet and cold and shivering, and I was just worried about that,” she said.
She was able to transport Shadow to Kingston Animal Hospital where he was warmed up and evaluated. Soon after, he was released back to his owner.
