Bri, a Bernese mountain dog, is lucky to be a live after a big scare in a half-frozen pond in Lone Tree, Colorado.

The crew from South Metro Fire Rescue arrived on the scene with one rescuer already in a dry suit.

With a safety rope tightly in hand, the rescuer crawled along the ice and pulled the dog to a position where it could escape.

 


 

The pup shook herself off and was about to trot away from the scene, but rescuers stopped her so she could be warmed up first.

Firefighters repeated a plea to keep dogs on a leash and never try to rescue an animal that fell through an ice pond or lake.
