1. Meet Sprig the Springer Spaniel.
His owners thought he was lost forever after being separated on a walk near Foreland Point in north Devon on 22 August.
3. The RNLI crew had initially thought he was a stranded sheep and were surprised to find the small, sad pup.
Helmsman Andrew Escott told the BBC: “We went in as close as we could then we could see it was a dog. It was about 30 feet above the water and we couldn’t work out how it had got in that position”.
5. He has since returned to his normal daily routine.
6. Watch the video of RNLI volunteers making their dramatic rescue.
(Trigger warning for people who suffer from seasickness. Seriously.)
