Malamute Saved From Fall Into Freezing Lake Ontario

Rochester police say they and firefighters were able to rescue a dog that fell off the Charlotte Beach pier into Lake Ontario.

The 120-pound Malamute named Oliver was spotted in the water about halfway down the pier.

The rescuers were able to get the dog closer to the pier, where animal control used a catchpole to grab him.

The dog was taken to the owner's veterinarian. It's believed he was in the water at least 45 minutes.
