SYLVANIA, Ohio (WTVG) - One pooch is safe after Sylvania Township firefighters saved it from an icy pond at Flower Hospital on Sunday.

The Sylvania Police Department released a video of the rescue on Facebook. It shows a member of the fire department crawling out onto the ice to a portion of the pond that had thawed.

After less than a minute, the firefighter reached the dog and safely pulled it out of the water. The dog then trots along the ice and is attended to by another first responder.
