A stray dog fell through the ice on freezing lake Michigan. Luckily, a passer-by saw the dog struggling to survive in the water and called the police, who managed to rescue the poor dog from almost certain death. His story was told on a local news station in America where they had dozens of enquiries about adopting him. Brenda Thompson fell in love with the dog as soon as she saw him on her TV and knew she had to have him. She rushed to the humane society when he was recovering and was at the top of the adoption list.
After a couple of weeks waiting for his owner to appear, Michigan is now going home with his new best friend. Brenda has a rescue dog at home already, who she took in after Hurricane Katrina. Michigan has a whole new family to love!
