What started as a fun day at the beach quickly turned into a rescue mission when a dog wandered onto a groyne and became trapped by the rising tide.

The incident happened at Peacehaven beach in East Sussex. When the dog’s owner realized his pup couldn’t safely make it back to shore, he dialed 999 and was connected with the coastguard. They were able to deploy two rescue swimmers who made it to the dog and were able to bring him safely to his owner.

The Newhaven Coastguard praised the dog’s owner and said, “The owner’s was very grateful to have their pet rescued, the owner done exactly the correct thing, in calling 999 and asking for the Coastguard, never attempt self Rescue.”

It could’ve ended in tragedy, but their quick thinking and rescue allowed the sweet pup to be reunited with his family.

It’s a good reminder to always practice safety at the beach and keep your pets on leash unless in designated off-leash areas.
