Great Hill Hose Co.

A dog from Seymour that had been missing for five days has been reunited with his family after he was rescued from a cliff by emergency responders.

According to the Great Hill Hose Company, the dog, Charlie, was spotted stuck about 150 feet up on a ledge off Roosevelt Drive around 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday.

Multiple groups responded to try to help the stranded pup, including a technical rope rescue team from Hamden and gators brought in from crews in Oxford.

One firefighter from Hamden went over the edge to rescue Charlie, who was secured with ropes, then lowered and released into the hands of his eager owners and a veterinarian for a health check. It took around four hours to complete the rescue.
