WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, MICH. — A dog rescued from ice on Lake St. Clair by a U.S. Coast Guard crew has been reunited with his owners.

The Detroit Free Press and The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens report KC on Wednesday evening was greeted by Jodi Benchich and her father, David, at Wilson Veterinary Hospital in Macomb County’s Washington Township.

Jodi Benchich says KC is “getting extra treats … for sure.” The dog is expected to be OK.

The crew of the Bristol Bay was heading Monday to help another vessel stuck in ice when the dog was found miles from land. The crew gave the dog the name “Lucky.”

Jodi Benchich says KC was missing since late February, when he got away from the family’s backyard in the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores.
