Dog Job

Eric and Gareth were on an Accident Prevention Patrol this afternoon. On the way back from Old Harry they waved to couple with a greyhound. Within a minute a call came in from the Ops Room that a dog - a greyhound had gone over the cliff near Old Harry. A quick u turn and the team were on scene in under 1 minute. Same people!

The cliff harness and safety equipment was put on allowing a Swanage Coastguard team member to look over the cliff and con the Swanage Lifeboat onto the dogs position. It appears she had fallen about 100ft and landed on some seaweed but had damaged her back legs.

Sandie the dog was taken to South Beach by the Swanage inshore boat and reunited with her owner and then taken to the vets via the Studland Chain Ferry. The Coastguard team rang ahead to the vets and hopeful Sandie will as we speak be in the vets capable hands.

By way of a thanks Eric and Gareth got a kiss off the lady owner, which was nice.

Fingers crossed its a good result and we wish Sandie a speedy recovery!
