A Santa Barbara County firefighter climbed down a beach cliff in Goleta Sunday morning to rescue a dog that fell off the edge.

Oakley, an Australian Shepherd mix, was on a walk with his owner when he fell down a steep hillside and became stranded.

Firefighter Eddie Luparella repelled down the cliff-side to rescue Oakley.

Santa Barbara County Fire says it took about 10 minutes to rescue the dog.

Oakley is uninjured and was reunited with his owner.
