GOLETA, Calif. - Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to the More Mesa area near Goleta after a dog became stuck on the side of a cliff Saturday afternoon.

The call came in around 3:36 p.m. Crews responded to the area of Mockingbird Lane and Calle Las Brisas prepared for the technical rescue.

Once there, they found a three-year-old dog named Louis who had fallen over the side of the cliff. The dog was reportedly walking with its owner when it got too close to the edge and rolled down the cliff.

Firefighters created a high angle rope system to retrieve the dog who was carried back to the top to be reunited with its owner.
