Ice Train frozen husky rehomed

Ice Train – the Husky found frozen to a rail track in Wisconsin – has found a new home with a local family.

Fifty three people applied to adopt Ice Train, after he was rescued within minutes of being hit by a train. Vickie O’Branovich, manager of the Chippewa County Humane Association shelter, selected Ice Train’s new family as they already have two Siberian Huskies, so know exactly what to expect.

Ice Train’s international fame has led to a rise in the number of adoption applications at Chippewa and one miraculous reunion. A family visiting the shelter, to see Ice Train, found the dog they had lost over a year ago.

It’s wonderful that Ice Train – who’ll hopefully be given a warmer name by his new family – has found a happy ending. Let’s remember the hundreds of other dogs who are lost on the streets in this cold weather. If you see one, it’ll only take a few minutes out of your day to run him to the local shelter.
