Owner of dog lost along Clackamas River sought
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is looking for the owner of a dog rescued from a cliff along the Clackamas River near Barton Park Sunday afternoon.
The dog is an older male with a large build, possibly a Rottweiler and Blue Heeler mix, without a collar.
He was taken to the Clackamas County Dog Shelter.
Anyone who can help find his owner should call Clackamas County Dog Services at 503-655-8628 or the sheriffs office at 503-785-5000 and refer to case number 16-12413.
According to the CCSO, a passing rafter spotted the dog and called 911 around 12:30 p.m. on May 8. They said the dog was about 30 feet down a 100-foot cliff.
When deputies located the dog they determined he had somehow gotten stuck on the steep cliff and was unable to climb back up or down. The deputies climbed what they described as a very steep and slippery embankment to reach him.
Deputies checked with residents along Southeast Highway 224 between Carver and Barton Park to look for the dogs owner, but were unsuccessful.
