Yesterday, however, a volunteer RNLI lifeboat crew spotted Sprig at the foot of a high cliff while out on a training exercise, and leapt to his rescue.

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".
