A fluffy white dog found stranded on cracked Arctic sea ice was rescued last week by Russian sailors in the autonomous Yamal-Nenets region. 

One-year-old Samoyed “Aika” had strayed far from her owner and village, wandering near the “Alexander Sannikov” icebreaker.

Aika can be seen carefully stepping around rugged ice chunks to step up to the ladder as sailors whistle and throw down treats. 

“When they showed me the video, I did not recognize her at first. She looked so unhappy, all covered with ice, and she did not walk well because she had pricked her little paws on the sharp ice,” she told the Russian Tyumenskaya Liniya news website in a video. “Now she can walk more or less.”

Chereshneva said that Aika is now much more cheerful and her appetite has returned, but she no longer rushes to go outside.
