Dog Rescue

Out along the Jurassic Coast today on a Private Charter. One of the clients askes us to stop and go back as he thinks he saw a a dog. This was about half way between Durlston Country Park and Dancing Ledges, a remote spot and not one that a lot of boats pass by at this time of year. So we go back and sure enough, there is a Spaniel type dog sat on the rocks. It looked un-injured, but we were not able to approach without putting our own vessel in danger.
We backed off so as able to get better RTF coverage with Portland Coastguard. Eventually the ILB from Swanage arrived on scene and quickly rescued the dog and taken back to Swanage.
So in 2 seasons, our tally is 2 boats, 2 deer and 1 dog

Statisticaly wise from what i remember the vast majority of ( DOG OVERs) falling off cliffs are of the spanial
breed. suppose bred as gun dogs they see a seagull and go for it ,,regardless.

only last week i was teaching youngsters about the perils of keeping safe on beaches and cliff tops ,,giving them the advise about having dogs on a lead and being held by an adult and not a small child when walking on cliffs .
sadly not all survive as happend when redcar lifeboat was called out to one the other week

Great outsome....Nice work

Had nobody called it in as missing? Has a collar on......

I've had two dogs off cliffs this year.....a mahoosive Bull Mastiff (superficial cuts only) and an Irish Setter who fell down into a sea cave (broken leg only).....agree with Martin though, having always had Springers growing up....they are properly stupid (but lovely)....

Yes, my wall says that you are not a fan of the Cervine race :-)
