With no rope to climb down and poor cellphone reception, Dunn got creative and angled a tree stump down into the cave hoping the dog could use it to climb out, but when that plan didn't work, he decided to hike 4 miles out of the state forest and get help.

That night, he put out word on social media. The next day, he returned with three fellow good Samaritans.

With rescue gear, they went to the cave and climbed down.

“Mission accomplished, we got the dog out,” he said in another video posted on social media.

Sally is now back with her owner, safe and sound.
