From NKY.com’s Patrick Reddy on Wednesday:

The Northern Kentucky Technical Rescue team pulled a German shepherd dog from an icy pond in Boone County this morning. 

Hope, a two-year-old German shepherd, was pulled from the icy water after falling through the ice of the pond near the 700 block of Richwood Road, Boone County.

Gary Erdman, 68, her owner, said he let the dog out for her morning run on the horse farm where he lives. When he called her to come back in he saw her in the middle of the pond, which is visible from his porch.

He ran down to the pond to rescue her. He said he got about 10 feet onto the ice when it gave way, submerging him up to his neck. He managed to get himself out of the pond and call 911.
