ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A black lab escaped from his owners and found his way onto the now frozen Lake Orion, according to the Orion Township Fire Department.
The dog, named Oscar, wandered out onto the lake and was unable to get back to shore.
Firefighters responded and ventured 250 feet out onto the lake to rescue the adventurous pup.
Oscar was brought back to shore and is now warming up with his owners.
The Orion Township Fire Department wants to remind everyone to never assume that the ice is strong enough to venture out on.
