A spokesperson for the Prawle Point Coastguard Rescue Team said: "On arrival, we set up our rope rescue equipment to enable our edge safety officer to locate the exact position of the dog. The edge safety officer was able to locate the dog which was safe and well at the bottom of the cliff.
"Given the location and as the tide was out, it was decided the best course of action was to send a shore team across via the shoreline to the base of the cliff.
"The team made their way round the rocks and were able to locate Rhubarb the dog and with some coaxing (and dog treats!), the team were able to get a lead onto Rhubarb and bring him safely back to his owners waiting on the beach."
If you see anyone in difficulty on or near the coast or tidal estuary, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
