Dog rescued from freezing water after falling through ice on pond in Lake Elmo

The dog was reunited with its owner.

Lake Elmo firefighters and members of the Washington County Sheriff's Office are being applauded for their efforts to rescue a dog that fell through thin ice. 

Details are limited, but the City of Lake Elmo says the rescue took place Sunday morning when the dog fell through the ice on a pond off of 38th Street in the east metro city. 

"The dog was largely unharmed and reunited with its owner after the rescue," the City of Lake Elmo said in a Facebook post

Another photo shows the dog, likely scared and cold, as it is being taken out of the icy water.
