13-year-old Boo was a dog who had been having a bad day when he went for a walk on an icy pond and fell through.

The senior canine was struggling in the icy water, but he managed to scream for help.

And thanks to the brave men of a Delaware fire department, he was rescued and brought to safety.

After his icy ordeal, Boo was immediately rushed to the vet. While there, this lucky dog was given a clean bill of health, much to the relief of his family.

There is no doubt that his family is going to be extra vigilant next time that Boo is out by the pond.

However, given his ordeal, we wouldn’t be surprised if it takes Boo a while to work up his courage to get close to the pond again.
