(KSL) The McInnes family of Eagle Mountain, Utah has reason to celebrate this weekend after a very scary situation involving their dog.

Toby, a 1-year-old English Sheepdog poodle, leapt off a cliff at Gooseberry Mesa in Washington County Thursday afternoon and fell roughly 300 feet.

“The boys were right there with me; they saw him jump,” said Ben McInnes, Toby’s owner.

He thinks Toby may have seen something during their trail ride, prompting him to leap off the cliff.

“For a split second you hope that he landed on something, but I knew there was nothing over there,” Ben McInnes said. “It was awful. You could hear him sliding and bouncing and yelping.”
