Dogs are loyal and protective pets that fill our lives with joy. They would do anything for us and this is why we need to help them every time they get in trouble. Our story starts near Lake Ontario in Canada where Inge, an 11-year-old blind dog fell into the freezing lake. Luckily, the people who saw that knew exactly what to do to save the pooch.
20. Needing Help
This white puppy is Inge. He is 11 years-old and he is blind which makes it hard for him to stay safe on his own. Let’s find out how he managed to fall into the lake.
19. How It All Started
Inge’s owner was staying in a car line waiting to board the ferry near lake Ontario, Canada. Inge needed to pee and his owner decided to let him out of the car. Little did he know, Inge would give him the scare of his life!
18. Lake Ontario
This story takes place during the winter and Lake Ontario’s waters were freezing. Sadly, Inge didn’t see where he was going and he fell into the lake. To make things even worse, the dog started swimming away from the dock since he didn’t saw where he was going…
17. Calling The Firefighters
On the bright side of things, someone who saw what Inge was going through got the right idea on how to save him. That person called the firefighters and told them that someone fell in the lake and isn’t able to get out.
16. Getting To Work
The firefighters arrived there in no time and they quickly got to work. Even though they realized that it isn’t a person who fell into the lake, they still did their job. Do you think they were able to pull Inge out of the freezing waters?
15. Grabbing Inge
The firefighters came equipped with a long pole that helped them grab Inge by his back. However, their mission was far from over since they still needed to get him out of there.
14. A Helping Hand
The firefighters were getting closer to the pup and things were looking good. On the downside, their hands couldn’t reach Inge and the firefighters needed to come out with a new idea.
13. Life Boat
Seeing how their hands were not long enough to grab the poor dog, the firefighters dropped into the water and brought a lifeboat with them. As we can clearly see, Inge was finally safe. But staying in the water for such long time caused him some problems…
12. The Dog Is Safe
The firefighters finally got Inge out of the water. This was amazing news, especially for the dog’s owner because he was terrified. Let’s see what happened next.
11. Getting Warm
Even though Inge was out of the water, the firefighters still needed to make sure that he doesn’t get sick. How do you think they managed to do that?
10. Warm Towels
The firefighters used warm towels to make Inge feel better. The pooch was lucky that the firefighters came to save him because his chances of survival were low if the rescuers didn’t move so fast. However, Inge isn’t the only animal to be saved by firefighters.
