A New Jersey police officer strapped on a safety rope and crawled out onto a frozen pond to rescue a dog that had fallen through the ice.

The ducks Nisel was chasing were able to get out of the water, but the puppy was not.

The dog, Nisel, was warmed up and reunited with her owners, WCBS reported.

But this canine game turned into a life or death situation last week.

Wooley says her prized pooch was frantic and freezing.

Wooley says that Nisel was in the water about 20 minus before being pulled out. She immediately called 911.

"They were trying to blow up a raft and officer said 'I'm not waiting, tie a rope around my waist'".

Officers Robert Voorhees and George Peterson, along with Hopewell Valley Emergency Services and Pennington Fire Company personnel were on scene.

"We could tell she was getting exhausted out there", Peterson said.

"The dog basically thought it was a great time running around afterwards", Peterson told the news station.

Despite the cold, Nisel is still determined to beat her ducks to the other side of the pond.

Voorhees said he has a puppy, making the rescue all the more emotional, WCBS reported.
