Crews used a rescue sled to reach the dog, and brought the beagle back to the shore.

Firefighters attempted to revive the dog using Basic Animal Rescue Training skills they learned during a class in September.

After several minutes of resuscitation efforts, the beagle was taken to a nearby animal hospital but did not survive.
