Dog stranded on Detroit River finds forever home with LaSalle, Ont. man who aided in his rescue

A dog who was rescued after being stranded on the ice in the middle of the Detroit River has found his forever home with the man who saved him.

When Jude Mead, director of J&J Marine in LaSalle, heard about the fluffy dog’s dilemma he took a boat out on the river to help with the search, picking up the pup near Mud Island, CTV News previously reported.

“He dodged coyotes, eagles, coastguard ice breakers, frigid temps, and he even fell into the river and climbed back up on the ice,” Friends of the River Rouge Animal Shelter said in a Facebook post. “This went on for four days with so many on the shore fearing he wouldn’t survive.”

Before Mead went out on the river, several calls were made and no one seemed able to help. A large group of concerned supported gathered around the river in Ecorse, Mich., where they watched the dog on the ice “all alone in peril,” the shelter says.
