Fox61 in Connecticut reported a happy result of an intense dog rescue in Seymour recently. A dog had been missing for five days and was reunited after being rescued by firefighters.

Charlie, the dog, had been missing and was discovered when a neighbor heard barks. Charlie was trapped 150 feet up a steep cliff face. “I heard a dog barking this morning but that’s not unusual either, but it had to be what it was,” said Ced Guyon, a neighbor.

Local firefighters took four hours to rescue Charlie. A firefighter went over the edge of the cliff to bring him to safety. The local volunteer fire department, Great Hill Hose Co., posted about the incident on Facebook. “Hamden Fire sent a member over the edge, who was able to reach ‘Charlie.’ The pup was safely secured, lowered and released into the hands of awaiting owners and Vets. Crews packed up equipment and began to exit the woods. We’d like to greatfully thank our mutual aid partners for their help at this incident. We are happy for the positive outcome, and hope ‘Charlie’ remains in good health,” the post read.
