RODEO (CBS SF) — Firefighters rescued a puppy that fell 200-feet off a cliff in Marin County Sunday.

The 7-month old pit bull named Mia landed on Rodeo beach, getting wedged between two rocks.

Rescuers used a helicopter and rope system to reach the puppy as a crowd watched above.

At first, Mia didn’t appear to be moving, and rescuers were afraid she was dead.

“The dog was kind of wedged between two rocks, and not moving at first, but then the dog moved its head, let them know she was alive,” Southern Marin Fire Captain Kai Pasquale said.

The dog was not seriously hurt, and was taken to a veterinarian to be checked out.
