LIMINGTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - A Black Lab is safe and sound after being pulled from icy waters by rescue personnel in Limington.

Captain Freeman Sprague, a diver with the Limington Fire Department, donned his wet suit and carried the dog on his back to safety.

"I have a couple of dogs myself so I know how it feels to have something like that happen, if my dogs went in I'd want a responder to do this exact same thing to get em out", Sprague said.







Bullet is a 10-year old who suffers from arthritis. He was on the other side of the pond on the Glidden family property Yesterday. When he was called to come back in the house, he decided to take a short cut across the ice and went through a soft spot.

"I'm just so thankful for the rescue workers who came out and they did a great job getting him. We're very glad they came and did that for us", said Sarah Glidden, Bullet's owner.

Captain Sprague says Bullet is the second dog his crew has saved this year. The last rescue effort was a bit different. It was for a pit bull stuck on the ledge of a mountain.
