SOUTH HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A missing chihuahua was rescued from an icy pond in South Haven Township Saturday afternoon.

South Haven Area Emergency Services (SHAES) says they responded to reports of a dog in the water behind the Church of Latter-day Saints.

The department says responder Matt Dey entered the water while dressed in one of their cold-water rescue suits right as the dog fell through the ice.

SHAES says the dog was retrieved shortly after and brought safely back to shore.

We’re told the 12-year-old dog, named Sasha, had been missing for several days prior to the rescue.

SHAES tells us Sasha is recovering at a nearby veterinarian's office.
