A DOG had to be rescued in Runswick Bay after a walker raised the alarm.

The walker approached a member of the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat crew and said the dog seemed to be in poor health and was unable to walk on Kettleness Beach.

A spokesman said the incident was on Monday, March 25, and added: “He had carried it as far as he could but had to leave it.”

A crew was raised from the Humber Coastguard but a search from sea proved unsuccessful. The spokesman said: “The crew went ashore to continue the search and eventually found a black border collie.

“The dog couldn’t walk so crew carried it clear of rocks and onto the boat, recovering the dog to shore.

“Humber coastguard contacted the RSPCA and a vet from Clevedale Veterinary arrived on scene. The dog was assessed and taken by the vet.”

It was believed the dog could have been missing for a couple of days but was relatively healthy despite its ordeal.

The spokesman said: “After the vet’s investigations the owner was found and re-united with their pet.

“Runswick Bay Rescue Boat crew would like to thank the gentleman who raised the alarm and the couple who offered assistance to the crew on site.”
