Dog plunges on to rocks

Have your say

A DAFT dog came down to earth with a bigger bump than he bargained for yesterday when he jumped over a sea wall – and plunged 15 feet on to rocks below.

Nevis the Golden Retriever broke a leg after he disappeared from view when he leapt over a wall while out for a morning walk with his owner in Cramond.

His panicked owner, who has not been named, clambered over to the wall to find the dog had plummeted on to jagged rocks below.

A vet and a fire crew were called and Nevis was rescued using a long ladder. He was recovering from his fall today after being treated by a vet.

A spokeswoman for Borders and Lothian Fire and Rescue said: “We received a call at 10.09am that a Golden Retriever was trapped at the bottom of the sea wall.
