MULLICA TOWNSHIP, N.J. -

We've been telling you all winter to stay off the ice and on Wednesday, January 8th, local heroes were put to the test to save a four-legged friend who didn't get the message.

The Mullica Township and Sweetwater Fire Department's Water Rescue crews sprang into action after a German Shepherd fell through freezing water on the 4100 block of Jackson Road.

Thankfully, the brave heroes were able to pull out little Quincy the dog and get him back home safely.
