RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Racine police have rescued a dog from the freezing waters of the city’s downtown harbor.

A passer-by noticed the white male shepherd in the harbor and going under the water late Friday morning.

Racine Officer Kristy Brietchaft tells The Journal Times (https://bit.ly/1m5ADvA ) that community service officers called out to the dog, which swam toward the voices. The officers were able to get a leash on the dog and get it out of the water.

The dog appeared to be OK. Officers took it to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Racine campus.

The dog had no collar or a microchip for identification.
