WELLESLEY (CBS) — Firefighters rescued a dog trapped on the ice on the Charles River Sunday morning.

Wellesley police said the golden doodle was stuck in the area behind Livingston Road.

“Cooper” the dog is OK and no one was hurt in the rescue, police said.

The rescue operation took more than 30 minutes.

The biggest challenge to rescuing Cooper was getting to the exhausted dog because there wasn’t clear access to him.

Police used GPS to locate the owner from his cell phone.

The dog went missing on Saturday, and his distraught family made flyers, police said. One of the first people to see the flyers said they saw Cooper on the ice.
