Dog is known as man's best friend, but sometimes man returns the favour, as demonstrated by a pet owner in Canada.

William R Graf, 93, and his Jack Russell terrier were walking near Lefferts Pond in Vermont on Saturday when the dog ran onto the pond, which was frozen at the time.

A nearby news crew was shooting a story on the dangers of thin ice and caught the rescue on camera.

He then trudged through the shallow water and the man and his dog made it to shore.

The victim was unable to get out of the water and drowned, police said.

Duncan McIver told CTV, "As soon as the ice broke, I just went right in..."

Eventually, he and Cosmo managed to reach the shore and climb out of the icy pond to safety.

McIver said the sight of his dog falling through the ice got his adrenaline pumping, so the cold temperature of the water didn't bother him.

He pushes the dog up from the ice before pulling himself out. "You're not just going to let him die, right?"
