CHICAGO — A golden retriever was rescued from Lake Michigan on Monday morning near Montrose Harbor.

Police were called to the harbor when someone reported a dog in the water, said Officer Kellie Bartoli, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.

Marine Unit officers got the dog out and took him to Belmont Harbor.

The dog was in “good, tail-wagging condition” and was set to be reunited with his owner around 12:30 p.m., Bartoli said.

Bartoli said the dog was a golden retriever but she wasn’t sure of his name.
