For Spring, a three year-old shih tzu, it was her lucky day. She had just been rescued from a puppy mill, along with a few other dogs, and was on her way to New York where she would begin a new life.
But when her transport stopped for a break in Chardon, Ohio, Spring escaped from the van and went running - right onto a frozen lake!
The Chardon Fire Department responded, and eventually had to break the ice and wade out into the frigid water to rescue the little dog.
Thanks to the great work of the firefighters, Spring is now safe and warm. See more of this story here:
