ST. LOUIS (AP) — A puppy is on the mend after being rescued from an icy pond in St. Louis. Firefighters and the Humane Society of Missouri rescued the 9-month-old female lab mix from O’Fallon Park Lake on Thursday morning.

The dog was taken to the Humane Society’s headquarters and had a body temperature of below 90 degrees.

Normal body temperature for a dog is 101.5 degrees.

Humane Society officials say the dog responded quickly.  Within an hour, she was standing and alert.
