HURON COUNTY, Mich. (CIRCA via WEYI) -- A dog was rescued from unstable ice about 200 feet off shore at Cresent Beach Road in Caseville Township around 9 a.m. Saturday.
The cocker spaniel was found by nearby neighbors and appeared to be wandering in circles not coming back to shore.
The dog was taken to the Caseville Animal Clinic to be checked over, as well as attempt to find its owner.
She was then taken to the Thumb Animal Shelter in Elkton where it was posted on social media as being found.
About an hour and a half later, the owner contacted the shelter and responded to pick up her dog. Reporting Deputy Matt Clark learned that the dog’s 60-year-old owner from Lapeer was visiting relatives about a half a mile away from where it was found.
16-year-old “Dolly” had very bad eye sight and struggled with hearing. The dog’s owner was appreciative to all involved who got Dolly back to her.
Dog owners are urged to update any addresses and pertinent information to records such as dog licenses and devices that can help find their owners in emergency situations.
