Dog rescued from cliff at Exmouth
HM Coastguard is again warning owners to keep dogs on leads to keep them safe when walking near cliffs after a dog fell down a cliff at Exmouth on Saturday and another dog died falling from a cliff in Dorset.
Exmouth Coastguard Rescue Team and the Exmouth RNLI inshore lifeboat were called out after a golden retriever fell 40 feet at Exmouth. The dog's owners were visiting the area on holiday and fortunately this dog was rescued unhurt.
Further along the coast, in Dorset, Lulworth Coastguard Rescue Team was called out to a beach close to Durdle Door, after a springer spaniel went over the cliff and fell 150 feet. Sadly, the animal was later found dead on the beach below.

"When walking near cliffs you should keep your dog on a lead to keep them safe. Even well behaved and obedient dogs can still behave unpredictably and run over cliffs when they hear or smell something interesting. If your dog goes over please dont attempt a rescue, in an emergency contact 999 for the Coastguard."
