Crew members assigned to Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay assist a dog they found stranded on the ice of Lake St. Clair March 4, 2014.

The crew was patrolling the lake and happened to spot the dog. The crew transported the dog to the ship and hoisted it aboard, where it was provided food and first aid before being transferred to an area animal shelter for further care.

The dog did not have tags, but the shelter believes that they have located the owner, after a person saw the photos online and recognized the dog as belonging to someone they knew on Facebook.
