Lifeboat crew launched the 'Y' boat which proceeded into the cove at the foot of the cliff where the dog had fallen.

The Cruden Bay Coastguard cliff rescue team recovered the dog and returned it to its owners.

Luckily the dog appeared to have no major injuries.

The lifeboat stood down at 2.57pm.
