Stray poodle rescued from cliff of Garret Mountain Park

One fluffy, scared poodle mix, who was stranded on the ledge of a cliff wedged between two rocks in New Jersey's Garret Mountain reservation in Passaic County, was one happy pooch as he was carried to safety Monday afternoon after a three hour rescue mission reported nbc newyork.com.

There were four firetrucks, 25 Paterson firefighters, Passaic County Sheriff's Officers, and Paterson's Animal Control there to rescue the lost or abandoned dog who had been spotted by a hiker when he heard the dog bark.

No one knows how the dog got himself wedged in such a precarious position, but whenever the men would try to lure the pooch out with some food, the dog just panicked and retreated further into the rock formation.

Rescuers rapelled into the ravine, placed the dog in a harness, and carried him out to safety.

No one knows anything about the little pooch, except that he needs a good grooming, some food, and most likely a good night's sleep. He was transported to the veterinarian for a checkup on Monday afternoon, and will be heading to the Second Chance Pet Adoption League in Oak Ridge.

If you are interested in adopting the little guy, please call (973)-208-1054.
