A group of firefighters rescued a lost dog trapped on the ice.

Firefighters found the dog down an ice-covered embankment in Prince George's County, Maryland.

One firefighter picked up the pooch and carried him across the ice. They both made it to safety.

The dog was taken to the fire department so he could be transferred to an animal control center.

Crews did not find a chip or nametag on the animal.

The firefighter who rescued the dog plans to adopt him if his owner does not claim him.
