CASS COUNTY, Mich. – A dog is now safe and warm thanks to the efforts of a Cass County deputy who ventured into an icy pond to save the pup.

On January 20, deputies with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call in the 56000 block of White Temple Road in Penn Township for reports of a dog that had fallen through ice in a pond.

Cass County Deputy Taryn Shields responded to the scene and found the dog, Leo, struggling to stay above water.

While on the ice to rescue Leo, Deputy Shields also fell through.

The deputy was able to get a hold of the dog and bring the both of them to safety on the shore.

Both Deputy Shields and Leo have warmed up and are doing fine.
