The dog by the name of Spud is now safe and sound.
Earlier today, Drumheller Fire and Rescue as well as EMS were dispatched to a hill just outside of East Coulee.
A four year old dog, Spud, sat cliff side on the hill not moving, crying and according to rescuers, dehydrated.
"I'm very happy they found my dog on the side of the road and called us," said owner Gay Osborne as she alluded to another community member who noticed Spud in distress.
Osborne told DrumFM that the canine had been missing for two days as her friends and family did all they could to find Spud.
"Fireworks went off on Monday night and he got scared and ran off. We looked until three o'clock in the morning," she said. "We looked all day Tuesday and then I put it on Facebook. Thank God somebody found him. "
Drumheller Fire and Rescue scaled the hill from the back to reach Spud. They used a harness to secure the pup as one rescue member lifted him to safety.
"I just have so many thanks for people who paid attention and kept helping me find my dog," she beamed.
Osborne also wishes a special thanks to all the rescue members who helped save Spud as, she said, he's a part of her family and she couldn't think of a life without him.
