ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A sheriff’s deputy used chest compressions and warm blankets to help revive a cold dog that was found in a creek bed in suburban Detroit.

The Oakland County sheriff’s department got a call late Friday from resident saying he could hear an animal in distress near his home.

With help from the caller, deputies found a small dog stuck in a creek bed in Orion Township with signs of hypothermia. The department says the dog appeared to be lifeless after being removed, but its condition improved and the owner was found.

The department says the 15-year-old dog, named Rocky, had been missing for 12 hours. It was returned the owner and taken to a veterinarian for treatment.

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures were mostly in the 30s Friday.
