The Colorado Springs Fire Department came to the rescue after a 30-lb sheep dog named Oreo took a fall from a 60-foot cliff in Colorado Springs.
The fall occurred above Helen Hunt Falls in North Cheyenne Cañon, which is a popular tourist destination. To rescue the dog, crews rappelled to the animal and then hauled it up.
The dog escaped with minor injuries to her mouth and was transported to the veterinarian by owners after the rescue.

This incident serves as a reminder to keep pets under control while in potentially dangerous situations. Utilize a leash while near cliffs and keep your animal close.
