The dog had been spotted wandering around North Range, N. Then on Sunday afternoon, residents living on the shores of Haines Lake noticed the dog standing on a patch of ice about metres from shore — too frightened to move.
It had been there for several hours when locals banded Digby to rescue it. The dog had been standing on a patch of ice about metres from shore — too frightened to move. At first, a kayaker tried to reach the dog but was unsuccessful. So, boat builder Nathaniel Denton and lobster fisherman Michael Titus sprang into action.
However, the canine wouldn't budge. But as they paddled closer, the dog would only slowly back away. So Denton decided to take things further, and got into the frigid water. In water well over his head, Denton began swimming toward the dog, breaking the ice along the way. Drone footage shows Denton making his way through the ice to reach the dog as it barks and watches warily.
Titus then paddled the canoe through the path in the ice to get closer to the animal. He had a little help from Lynch, who dropped hot dogs using his drone so that Titus could use them to entice the dog to come closer. It worked, and Titus got the dog into the canoe. He started paddling to shore, with Denton swimming behind. The duo says the whole rescue took more than an hour. Nathaniel Denton left and Michael Titus sprang into action when they noticed a dog stranded on a patch of ice in the middle of Digby County lake.
Fire and water rescue personnel from the surrounding area were on standby on shore, in case they were needed, along with a local RCMP Nova Scotia women ill host. Titus' wife, Carla, was also there to capture the rescuers' return to shore — and help take care of the tired pup, which was hungry, but otherwise seemed all right. This wasn't Denton's first animal rescue. About four years ago, while doing some work at the Digby wharf, he and a group of locals discovered a minke whale in the cove entangled in twine embedded into its skin.
He helped cut the twine loose, and the whale swam free. Carla Titus says she wasn't worried about her husband and Denton heading out onto the lake. As for the dog, an officer with Digby Municipal Dog Control was on shore to take the animal to the pound.
Scott Cromwell says they are waiting to see if her owner comes forward, in case she is a lost pet. But Cromwell says if she isn't claimed within five days, the dog will be put up for adoption, and he says he's already had plenty of calls from people interested in giving the so-called "lake dog" a forever home. The Digby Municipal Dog Control was on shore to take the animal to the pound. Cromwell says if she isn't claimed within five days, the dog will be put up for adoption. While the pair are now being hailed as local heroes, they remain humble.
When asked how they knew what to do, their response? Denton donned a dry suit, and the pair hopped into Titus' canoe to paddle out to the dog.
