Here are some exciting video images of a dramatic winter rescue of a dog who had fallen into a frozen pond and was unable to get out until he was assisted by the courageous efforts of Russian man who helped pull the canine to safety!

This incident took place in a town in the state of Kostroma in Russia on November 7, 2016 and it is clear to see that this area was suffering from heavy snow and subzero temperatures which had caused the surface of the pond to freeze over.

A dramatic rescue in the extremely cold conditions!

Although most of the surface of the pond had been frozen over, this dog had somehow chosen a route in which the ice collapsed under the animals weight as shown in the image.
