They could see the dog on a ledge at the foot of the cliffs and requested that the Dart inshore lifeboat recover him and reunite him with his owner on Hallsands beach.
When the crew arrived the dog tried to come to them but his left front leg was quite deformed by a fracture.
The crew carried the 'very well-natured' dog back to the boat.
Once at the beach he was gently placed in a padded fishbox for his owner to take him off to the vet.
The lifeboat crew were Kevin Murphy, Tony Rendle and Jamie Mathys, while the launch crew were Mark Conroy and Chris Rampling.
