Dog rescued from freezing Volant pond

Posted: Updated:
VOLANT, Pa. -

A Great Dane was pulled from a frozen pond by Volant and Neshannock Township firefighters Thursday morning. 

At 10:15 am, Volant Volunteer Firefighters were dispatched to save the dog, who had broken through the ice of a pond about 20 feet from shore. 

The Neshannock Township Fire Department water rescue team was called to assist. 

The firefighters located a boat and secured the dog with rope, lifting him onto the solid ice and taking him back to shore. 

The Great Dane was placed into a strokes basket so he could be taken to a car, evaluated and warmed up. 

Both the owner and the dog are reported to be in good condition.
