Hunter the dog was riding in a car with his owner when he suddenly jumped out of the open window and landed on a steep cliff. Trapped in ivy, he fortunately did not roll down to what could have been his death — but he was also hopelessly stuck with no way to get down.

Firefighters and Washington state troopers arrived on the scene, but help also came from a very unlikely source — a homeless man who happened to be in the area. The brave and good-hearted man climbed up the hill and brought the frightened dog down to safety.

Hunter went to the vet, and is doing just fine.

Thank you, kind man, for helping this dog in danger.
