You may hear about the US Coast Guard saving the life of humans, but on this particular day, they spotted something out of the ordinary. As they were passing by ice on Lake St. Clair, they saw a dog stranded on the ice and he had been there for 3 days.
They gained the trust of the dog, with the help of some lunch meat and he ate and drank water. It took some time but they were able to get the dog onto the boat and he is expected to make a full recovery. His owner reported him missing months ago.
