This afternoon the patrol were at Anvil Point when they were approached by a lady reporting that her dog may have gone over the cliff.
The patrol searched the area before requesting the launch of the Swanage RNLI inshore lifeboat.
Someone then spotted the dog on a ledge so with the help of the patrol the lifeboat was guided to the right spot to collect the dog.
The patrol then took the owners to meet the lifeboat and reunited all parties.
Always keep dogs on leads near cliff edges - never try and rescue a dog that has fallen from cliffs - dial 999 and ask for Coastguard.
