A lucky dog has been rescued from jagged cliffs metres above the sea after going missing for nearly two weeks.
Peppa was plucked from a dangerous position on rocks teetering over crashing waves on the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd, Wales, on Wednesday.
Photographs shared by the Abersoch Coastguard Rescue Team show a crew member being lowered down on a rope to Peppa as she obediently waits precariously perched above a precipice.
Cliffs in the area can reach heights of over 300 feet and the region is popular with walkers and nature lovers.
The petrified pooch had been spotted by coastal path walkers and a fisherman who quickly raised the alarm to the emergency services.

A coastguard helicopter as well as teams from the RNLI Porthdinllaen, Aberdaron Coastguard Rescue Team and Criccieth Coastguard Rescue team were tasked with the rescue mission from the clifftop between Ogof Pren-coch and Porth Orion.
Sharing photos from the rescue mission, Abersoch Coastguard said: “We were informed that a dog had been missing since 12 August and, unlikely as it seems, Peppa matches the description down to the pink collar.”
Friends of the owners have taken Peppa in for now and shared an image of the rescued dog relaxing safely indoors.
Commenting on the coastguard’s post, Rebecca Hull said: “We have Peppa here with us. She is doing incredibly well, considering her ordeal. Her owners are on their way to be reunited. Thank you to all involved in her rescue. What a lucky dog she is.”

Suzanna Clark also said her husband had alerted the emergency services after spotting Peppa.
She said: “My husband spotted the dog and called emergency services. This photo brought a tear to our eye, knowing she’s safe and well, and family are on their way. I can’t imagine how the family feel.”
According to the National Trust the Llŷn Peninsula has “a unique microclimate, benefiting from the gulf stream, bringing warmer sea temperatures and weather” making it a “perfect home for unusual habitats and fascinating wildlife”.
All the beaches on the peninsula are listed as dog-friendly for well-behaved animals, although rules can vary depending on the time of year.
