A dog found floating cold and alone on an ice floe in the Baltic Sea has been rescued and brought to shore, where the search for his owner has begun.
The black-and-brown mutt was found adrift on Monday 15 miles (24km) off the Polish coast by the crew of the Baltica, a Polish ship of sea scientists.
Natalia Drgas of the Baltica crew said on Thursday the rescue was difficult and the dog kept falling into the icy waters.
Ship’s captain Jersey Wosachlo said crew members would put their hearts into reuniting the dog with his masters. Two women, each claiming to be the owner, plan to meet the dog on Thursday in the Polish port of Gdynia.
