A dog was rescued Thursday morning after falling through the ice of a small pond in Canterbury.

The owner of the dog phoned the Canterbury Fire Department from their Baptist Hill Road home around 11 a.m. after the dog broke through the ice and they were unable to pull it free.

Once on scene, firefighters placed extension ladders on the ice to attempt to get closer to the distressed dog. Crawling across the ice, one firefighter was able to loop a rope around the dog’s neck and pull the dog from the water onto the ice and later to shore.

The dog was wrapped in blankets and returned to the owner. Other than being cold, wet and fatigued, the dog showed no signs of injury, fire officials reported.

Canterbury police and fire departments were assisted by Boscawen Fire Department and Penacook Rescue.
