Dog rescued after 4 days stranded along icy Detroit River


ECORSE, Mich. (AP) — A dog that survived frigid temperatures and a run-in with a coyote has been rescued after spending four days stranded on ice along the Detroit River.

The small dog was rescued by a boater from Windsor, Ontario, following an international effort that involved Americans and Canadians on both sides of the Detroit River.

The canine is being looked at by staff at the Woodhaven Animal Hospital, who are calling the 1-year-old male dog Alfonso. The hospital’s staff said Sunday in a Facebook update that he was doing well.
