    First responders rescued a dog from a Wall lake Sunday afternoon. 

    Officers from the Wall Township Police Department responded to a lake on Allaire Road for an ice rescue around 3 p.m., according to a release from South Wall Fire Rescue. 

    Upon arrival, units spotted a dog in the middle of the lake keeping his head above water and quickly used a nearby row boat to rescue the pet without incident. 

    “Another outstanding job by Wall Police and South Wall members,” the release said. 

    Robert Bradley, the dog’s owner, posted a note of gratitude to the first responders on the South Wall Fire Rescue Facebook page Monday morning. 

    He wrote: 

    My wife and I would like to express our tanks and gratitude to the Wall Police and the South Wall Fire Rescue Departments for saving our dog from the freezing water yesterday. The prompt response and quick thinking by these officers and volunteers made all the difference as he was in the freezing water for over 25 minutes. The teams were not only professional and courteous but understanding as well as a team member followed up with us hours later to see if our dog, Hunter, was okay. Thanks again, our thanks and hats off to you.
