“A dog had a lucky escape when a Polish boat rescued him from an ice floe that had carried him more than 100 miles up a river and out onto the icy waters of the Baltic Sea.

Ship engineer Adam Buczynski managed to scoop the dog off the floe onto an inflatable dinghy and wrapped him in a blanket.”

Animal shelters are full of dogs and cats who were abandoned by their owners when they grew tired of them. It makes me sad whenever I see people who abuse their pets.
 
Thank goodness that there are people, like the crew of this boat, who realize that dogs are truly man’s best friend. Dogs are loving and loyal, and the least we can do is provide for all their necessities and shower them with love.
 
The story of this doggie’s rescue makes up for all the horrible stories that we hear about mistreated and abused animals.
 
The crew are trying to locate the owner, and if they can’t I hope one of them will adopt the pooch.
