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.
“Bri” is one lucky pup. The crew from Firehouse 34 was quick to arrive with a rescuer already dressed in a dry suit. The team on shore held his safety rope tightly and the Dive Team was also responding, just in case. All SMFR fire engines are equipped for ice rescues. pic.twitter.com/alkPz6D69l

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.
