A heart-stopping rescue from the side of a cliff in northern california reunites a dog with his owner.

The dog, named Oreo, was stuck about halfway down a 90-foot cliff And couldn't move from a tiny ledge without falling.

Oreo's owner called 911 for help.

The sheriff's department sent in a helicopter and cameras were rolling as a deputy, hanging from the bottom of the helicopter, navigated to Oreo's ledge and pulled him to safety.

The deputy says he and the black lab got to know each other well on the three-minute ride back to safety.
