Firefighters got a call about a 10-month-old German Shepherd named Maverick who have fallen in the ice near Drauden Road and Catherine Drive.

But before Firefighters arrived, a person saw Maverick and used his kayaker to reach the German Shepherd but couldn’t reach him.

Then, when the firefighters arrived, one of them named Bill Cascone wore a water rescue suit, also known as Gumby suit, to reach Maverick by going into the water.

Bill managed to get a hold of the German Shepherd. However, they were stuck and couldn’t get out.

So, using a rope, Lt. Brian Stevens and firefighter/ paramedic Dennis House pulled them out of the icy water.  

But, how was Maverick doing after being exposed to really icy water?

Welcome to my bio everyone, my name is Nada. Ever since I was little, I have loved animals because they are so loving and kind. All they need is you attention, love, and care but I didn't understand them very well because I didn't get the chance to raise them. Well, That changed when my family and I got our first dog Rocky, a German Shepherd. Rocky was fun and loving with funny quirks. Being loyal and protective of us, he made me see the nature of a German Shepherd. Now, we have another German Shepherd named Mia. She is a wonderful dog and a rescue who just needed a second chance in life. Mia has long grown from being a terrified dog to the brave and caring German Shepherd that she is today. P.S: Here is a picture of our beautiful German Shepherd, Mia.
