When a Chihuahua mix puppy fell over 80-feet off Sunset Cliffs in San Diego lifeguard came to the puppy’s rescue.

The 3-month-old Chihuahua fell off the cliffs around 2 p.m. on Friday. He was running off leash when he got too close to the edge of the cliffs fell. The puppy’s owners ran off. Good Samirtans immediately flagged down some lifeguards nearby. Lifeguards brought the puppy to their headquarters until he could be evaluated by a veterinarian. The puppy thankfully landed on the sand, but he still suffered some serious injuries.

The San Diego Department of Animal Services is caring for the puppy. Deputy director Daniel E. DeSousa said the puppy suffered serious head trauma from the fall. The puppy was taken to an emergency hospital for overnight observation. Animal Services will be paying for the dog’s treatment with their Spirit Fund.

  1. Sometimes I think people do things on purpose, like let a pup run loose hoping something bad will happen to their pet. just so they can get rid of it

    • Totally agree – especially as they left the scene thinking they had succeeded in murdering their dog. Hope the puppy recovers and they find him a real loving home.

  2. what I want to know is… is the baby ok and did they get the things (because their not humans) that left him. I hope so on both.

  3. I don’t think they did this on purpose. Accidents happen, I don’t think these people wanted their puppy to fall off the cliff. Why do people immediately think the worst. I’m glad the puppy is o.k.
