This isn't the first, or the last time, that a dog has needed rescuing in the Hudson Valley. Thankfully, our local first responders are ready at any moment to help our furry friends in need.

In February of this year, Newburgh firefighters were called to the Hudson River where a small pup was found stranded on the ice. They told the harrowing tale of saving Lilly the pup from the freezing Hudson on Facebook:

Truck 1 responded to the Washington St boat launch for a report of a dog stuck out on the ice. After several attempts to retrieve the dog from the shore were unsuccessful, members entered the water in Ice Rescue suits and rescued Lilly the dog. She was quickly reunited with her family without injury.

Take a look below at some of the photos from the scene below:
