A very cute beagle got himself in quite a predicament Sunday afternoon and it took a very delicate rescue to get him to safety.

The dog named Apollo managed to get himself up part of the way on a huge embankment along the Fulmer Creek in German Flatts, New York.

Around 3:00 Sunday afternoon, his owner, who had been searching for him noticed he was high above the ground nestled in a small crevice of the cliff.

Rescuers from the Mohawk, Ilion and East Herkimer fire departments responded and had to have one firefighter repel about 250 feet down the huge cliff to carefully and successfully take Apollo up to safety.
