As the dog bounded on to the snowy ground, one rescuer could be heard saying: “Wow, he’s doing great!”

The City of Winnipeg wrote: “Dog owners are reminded to keep their dogs on leash around frozen waterways to prevent them from chasing geese onto the ice – ice surfaces are thin and fragile, and falling into ice-cold water can be deadly.”
