It's more usually the remit of their cat counterparts - but this time it was a dog who's had to be rescued from a tree.

Fire crews at Newquay Fire Station were called out to reports of "something" in need of a rescue:

And it turned out to be somebody's pet!

A little Jack Russell chased a cat up the tree, but got stuck themselves.

But don't worry, this tail has a happen ending.

Crews used a triple extension ladder to rescue the dog, who's been safely reunited with his owner.

Leah is a five year old greyhound who was originally rescued from appalling conditions at the end of her racing career and happily rehomed very quickly.

The 'happy and friendly' dog has recently come back into Greyhound Rescue West of England’s care when her new owner could no longer care for her.

As Leah has lived in foster care with a boxer and two other greyhounds, she would enjoy a home with the company of other dogs. The charity have launched an appeal to attempt to find her a new home.

If you can help by offering Leah or another dog a home, get in touch with GRWE on 07000 785 092.
