Michigan-based Coast Guard cutter crew rescues dog trapped on Lake St. Clair, search for owner

(WXYZ) - It's a story that sent tails wagging -- at least for one lucky little dog who was rescued from the ice of Lake St. Clair Tuesday.

Crew members from the local U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay found the dog stranded atop the ice and were able to safely hoist it onto the ship.

The dog was found about 4 miles off the coast. 

Once on board, the pooch was provided with food and first aid before being transferred to an area animal shelter for further care.

The Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay is a 140-foot ice-breaking tug based in Detroit.
