After a 45-minute search involving nearly 20 people, the pet was finally spotted among the large rocks.

Her color meant she blended into the 185-million-year-old Jurassic Coast rock formations.

Fortunately, Roxy was unharmed and the coast guards reunited her with her relieved owners, a British family vacationing on the south coast.

Tony Goss, of Wyke Coastguard, said Roxy was “very lucky” to get out unscathed and urged walkers to keep their dogs on a leash near cliff tops.

He said, “Roxy fell about 50 feet and rolled off a very steep bank.

“The owners have two dogs that are not on a leash.

“They were next to the cliff and they looked away for a moment and when she looked back Roxy was gone.

“They were distraught and called 999, which they put us through and we sent two teams to look for Roxy.

“We had been looking for her for a while because her color made her very hard to see.

“We had a team on the cliff looking down and another team walking along the beach.

“Eventually we saw her huddled between some rocks and it took so long for her to look like a rock.

“Roxy had no injuries and we reunited her with her relieved owners.

“She was a lucky dog ​​and we urge people to put dogs on a lead along the edge of the cliff because no matter how well behaved they are, they will go after something.”

A Lulworth Coastguard spokesman said: ‘A dog had fallen off cliffs at Dungy Head.
