Wellesley Fire Department Rescues Dog From Icy Waters

It may be the end of December, but local waters are not completely frozen over. This is the lesson one dog learned on Saturday.

At 1:39 p.m., Wellesley Police Department received a call about a dog that had fallen through ice in the Charles River. Through the 911 system, dispatchers were able to pinpoint where exactly the owner was calling from. Firefighter Dave Papazian and Wellesley Fire Lieutenant Paul Delaney were then able to rescue Crosby, the 5-year-old Golden Retriever. Other officers and firemen were on shore pulling them by rope. Cosby was dried off and returned to his family.

The dog had fallen through the ice and was trapped 50 yards offshore of Winding River Circle.

This is one big reason why you should never walk your dog off leash near a body of water when it is not safe for swimming. Even when the water is not frozen, most of the ponds in the local parks are filthy and ridden with bacteria. Rule of thumb: if you would not take a swim in this filth, then neither should your dog. If you are looking for a reliable and responsible dog walker/sitter, please check out our website and give me a call. Your dog will always be SAFE with me, Will Matthews, owner of Domesticated Dog Walkers LLC-; 339-222-1451; www.domesticateddogwalkers.com will@domesticateddogwalkers.com
