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.
