Photos from the rescue show the emotional moment Macdonald and Max were reunited.

The case of a missing Sheltie turned into a dramatic rescue Thursday after firefighters had to save a family pet that had fallen over a cliff.

Fraser Macdonald discovered his dog Max had gone missing Wednesday night from their Belcarra yard, and it wasn’t until Thursday morning that the first clues of Max’s whereabouts were noticed by a neighbor.

The neighbor alerted Macdonald after hearing barks from the other side of a large bluff. After looking, they found Max about 70-feet down the cliff.

Sasamat Volunteer Fire Department was called and collaborated with Port Moody Fire to perform a high-angle rescue. Max was lifted up the bluff in one of Macdonald’s shopping bags.

The dog was in good health, except for being a little thirsty.
