The incident began at around 12:30 when HM Coastguard were alerted to the plight of man’s best friend near to Ventnor Botanical Gardens.
Using specialist rope equipment, Coastguard Rescue Officers have been able to rescue the 18-month-old Labrador from around 15ft down the cliff between Steephill Cove and Orchard Bay.
Thankfully, the young dog has not sustained any injury and has now been reunited with its owner.
Earlier this week Coastguard Rescue Teams from Ventnor and The Needles were called to a dog over the cliff at Whale Chine. Sadly, in contrast to today’s incident, the dog did not survive the ordeal.
At the start of the month a dog was rescued from a cliff in Bonchurch.
If you or someone else is in difficulty on the coast or at sea, or if you spot what you think may be unexploded ordnance, then dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard. Further safety information can be found at https://coastguardsafety.campaign.gov.uk/.
