The man fell approximately 200m in the Atlantic Slab area of Carnedd y Filiast on May 29, and it's thought that Sutty the spaniel was frightened off by the ensuing helicopter rescue.

'Posters had been put up in the area so when a local couple heard whimpering as they climbed on Atlantic Slabs they knew it had to be the missing dog' Chris Lloyd of Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team told the BBC.

'The man, Rob Shepherd, is a member of Llanberis mountain rescue, but he called Ogwen [mountain rescue] because it was on their patch.'

'They got more people to come with additional ropes and the dog was lowered down in his partner Sian Williams' rucksack.'

'He's in remarkably good condition really, although he's probably very thin under all that fur. He was very glad to be rescued.'

The dog was then reunited with his owner's daughter. The casualty remains in hospital in Birmingham.
