The Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District and Round Lake Beach Police Department responded around 5:05 p.m. Sunday to the 200 block of Pennsbury Court in Round Lake Beach.
A dog had gotten loose in the area, walked onto a pond, which was partially covered by ice, and fell through into the water.
A resident on Pennsbury Court said in an interview that his wife called 911 after he spotted the dog in the pond.
