Bryan firefighters executed a water rescue of a dog Friday afternoon at 107 Sunrise Lane. The incident started at approximately 1:10 p.m. when the residents called the fire department’s direct line.

They saw one dog at their pond running in circles around another that had broken through the ice, Fire Chief Bruce Siders said at the scene.

“We came out, the guys suited up in their water rescue suits and went out and got the dog,” he said. “We have no idea who (the dogs) are or who they belong to, but they’re pals and they run around together.”

The homeowners at 107 Sunrise said the dogs weren’t theirs but took them into their heated garage while the fire department arranged for veterinary examination at the scene.

“Both dogs are doing fine,” Williams County Humane Officer Alicia Strup said late Friday. “The one who fell through the ice is dry and happy now.

“I scanned them for computer chips but there were none,” she said.

Neither Strup nor Siders knew the names of the dogs or who they belonged to.

Photos of both dogs have been posted to the Williams County Ohio Dog Pound’s Facebook page.
