A puppy fell 80 feet down a cliff face in the Sunset Cliffs area and survived.
The San Diego Police Department said the 3-month-old male fell off the cliffs near Ladera Street.
Lifeguards rescued the pup and took care of it at the lifeguard tower in Ocean Beach until officers arrived and it could be evaluated by a veterinarian.
According to lifeguards, the dog’s owner could not be located and may have left it behind.
The lifeguards said they believe someone was walking the pup...
...and abandoned the animal when it fell.
The puppy has broken ribs and suffered some head trauma.
The puppy was taken to an animal hospital.
He's getting lots of rest...
...and is said to be doing well.
