WARSAW, Poland — A frightened, shivering dog was rescued after floating 75 miles on an ice floe down Poland’s Vistula River and into the Baltic Sea, officials said Thursday.
Now his saviors just have to figure out who really owns him.
Four people have already claimed him, but so far rescuers say there’s been no wagging tail of joy from the miracle dog they nicknamed “Baltic.”

WARSAW, Poland — A dog rescued from the Baltic Sea after braving a 75-mile journey on an ice floe is making himself at home on the Polish research ship whose crew rescued him, the captain said Friday.
Jerzy Wosachlo, the captain of the Baltica, said the dog slept on a blanket in the ship’s laboratory, then shared a sausage breakfast with the crew. He said the dog often sticks close to the mechanic who saved him but also has started moving around as he pleases, enjoying the company of people.
