The owners of a german shepherd mix let their dog off the leash as they walked along a creek in the town of swift current in Saskatchewan.
The dog began walking on the frozen creek but fell through some thin, slushy ice.
Firefighters arrived and one firefighter gingerly moved across the ice on his stomach while two others held a rope tied around the rescuing firefighter.
The firefighter pulled the dog out of the ice and moved back to the shore with the help of the other firefighters.
In spite of being partially paralyzed by the ice, the dog climbed the hill to be comforted by its owners.
Firefighters said they released this video to warn people about thin ice.
