Call him the luckiest dog alive.
First he was rescued after traveling more than 75-miles of an ice floe in the Baltic Sea, now he has a new home.
The whole tale started Monday when the German Sheppard mix was spotted floating on a chunk of ice by the crew of a Polish research vessel.
The crew believes he had been there for days, traveling more than 60 miles down a river and another 15 in the Baltic Sea.
Crew members used a rubber dingy to rescue the dog and wrap him up safely in a blanket.
He has since been living on the research vessel where the crew named him Baltic.
If the dog's owner can't be found, crew members plan to adopt him.
