Greater Sudbury Fire Services say a dog was successfully rescued from an island on Whanapitae River.

Fire Services tweeted out a picture and say residents in the area believe the dog was stranded for several days.

The owners say the dog disappeared from them a week ago Sunday and just a few hours ago they were reunited.

Fire services got the call around 11 am this morning and used a boat from their main station to bring the dog in who will now receive vet attention.
