CLACKAMAS, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies are looking for the owner of a dog they rescued from a cliff on the Clackamas River, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

A passing rafter found the dog and called 911, saying the dog was about 30 feet down a 100 foot tall cliff.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol then launched their boat at Carver Park and drove up the river where they found the dog about one mile downriver from Barton Park.

Deputies said the dog somehow managed to get stuck on the steep cliff and was unable to climb back up or climb down.

After climbing a steep and slippery embankment, deputies were able to rescue the dog and bring it to safety.

Deputies attempted to find the dog’s owner by checking numerous homes along Southeast Highway 224 with no luck.

The dog is described as an older male, large build, possibly Rottweiler and Blue Heeler mix with no collar.

Deputies said the dog was transported to the Clackamas County Dog Shelter.

If you know the dog or know the owners, contact Clackamas County Dog Services at 503-655-8628 or the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office at 503-785-5000.
