Firefighters saved little dog in Westminister

Yesterday afternoon Westminster Fire Department responded to an emergency call of a dog in the pond at Faversham Park (6109 W 73rd Ave).

The crew arrived to find a small dog in the icy pond that couldn’t get out. The fire crew from Westminster Fire donned ice rescue gear to safely get the dog out.

Unfortunately, the crew didn’t get the chance to find out the name of the dog or owner (the owner was anxious to get the dog home to dry off and warm up).

Important safety messages: (1) It’s best to keep your dog on a leash and (2) NEVER go out on the ice to save your pet – you can easily become the victim that needs to be saved. Call 911 for ice rescue.

The photo was taken by Westminster Police Officer Eric Knopinski.

  1. Is that a Basenji?? Poor baby. I always keep my (Basenji) dog on a leash. But it would be hard for me not to chase him onto ice if he got away!
