Sheriff’s Deputy Rescues Dog From Freezing Water

A deputy with the Cass County Sheriff’s Department is being credited with saving a dog that fell through ice in a pond. The department says Deputy Taryn Shields responded to the 56,000 block of White Temple Road in Penn Township on Wednesday after a call came in about a dog that had fallen through some ice in a pond and was struggling to get out. Deputy Shields arrived to see the dog struggling to stay above water, so she went in after him. In the process, she herself wound up in the water, but she was able to rescue the dog and get back to shore safely. Both deputy and dog, whose name is Leo, are doing fine.
