Heavy rescue cutting equipment and drills were used to cut away rocks in a desperate attempt to reach the dog.
However, due to the speed of the rising sea water, Kent Fire and Rescue Service says it became "impossible" to carry out a rescue safely.
After 107 minutes, the decision was made to abandon the rescue attempt.
In a statement regarding the incident, Kent Fire and Rescue Service added: " The crews in attendance worked as fast as they could and did everything possible under the circumstances to save the family pet.
"Our thoughts are with the owner at this sad time."
