This is the heart-stopping moment a woman with ninja reflexes caught her ‘clingy’ dog after it plunged over 20ft from an upstairs window.
CCTV footage shows the woman chatting to a window fitter on her doorstep in Hawkinge, Kent, when she suddenly notices something out of the corner of her eye.
Looking up, she can see her six-year-old female border collie Clarence has pushed open a bathroom window and is about to pass through it.
She quickly says to the man, ‘Oh my God, get back’ and darts into place, ready to catch her.
As Clarence plummets down, the woman manages to grab hold of her just inches away from a hard landing.

Oh my God… oh my God,’ the woman repeats as she cradles the dog in her arms.
When asked about the incident, the woman said: ‘No she’s never done that before and she’s six so it was a bit of a shock!
‘She’s always been an independent dog but I guess she’s become clingy since the pandemic and working from home, she always wants to be by my side.
‘I just didn’t realise how far she’d go to do that!
‘The windows were shut but she managed to push one wide open. I only noticed she was there because the sun’s reflection on the wall moved and caught my eye.’
Users on social media were quick to praise the woman’s lightning instincts, which almost certainly saved her dog from broken limbs.
