Baltic the Dog, who spent days on an ice-floe before a dramatic rescue by a crew of a scientific research vessel, is officially a salty sea dog. Six people stepped up to claim him as theirs, but he wasn’t. We already reported that Baltic would be adopted by the ship’s crew, but we wanted to keep you posted, and show you this photo taken today in Poland with his new owner, Adam Buczynski. Adam is the one who pulled Baltic from the ice floe. Awww!!!
