FARGO, N.D. (WCCO) – A black Labrador was rescued in Fargo after getting stuck on the edge of a slab of ice along the Red River.

The Fargo Fire Department responded to the scene near El Zagal Golf Course Tuesday afternoon.

As a video from the department’s helmet camera shows, the Labrador was stuck on the edge of the ice and was attempting to get back to shore.

The dog had apparently gotten away from its home after the owner’s invisible fence equipment stopped working.

Firefighters were able to retrieve the dog while wearing water rescue suits. No one was injured and the dog was returned to its owner.
