A dog rescued from a frozen patch of Lake Michigan is expected to go home Sunday.

Pifas was reunited with his owner this afternoon. His owner says he was in good spirits and a playful mood, but he won't be coming home Saturday because the 3-year-old pooch must be neutered before being released.

A kayaker helped emergency officials rescue Pifas from Lake Michigan Friday.

His owner says the dog had been missing for nine days.
