I am sure many of you have heard about the dog that was thrown off of a rooftop in Chennai, India. (pictured below)

Puppy Thrown Off Roof Begins Recovery Journey

Below is the video of the incident which sparked outrage, In the video the man grabs the dog, looks at the camera, smiles and tosses her. The cry of the poor puppy is just indescribable – do not watch it if you don’t want to. (story continues below video)

Following the video’s release there have been many updates in the story.

Firstly, we are happy to inform you that the puppy which appeared in the video was found alive. Also, the puppy’s name is Bhadra, which means blessed in Hindi.

At first, everybody assumed the dog had died but only a few days ago a picture was posted by Shravan Krishnan who is an animal rights advocate and co-founder of the Hotel for Dogs, posted on his FB page that Bhadra is alive.

Immediately after the incident neighbors called the authorities to check the dog and give her the medical attention. When Krishnan found the dog, she was shivering, all in terror and not able to walk properly, but even then she was wagging the tail.

From there she was taken to the Madras veterinary Collage, where she is still recovering.

“She has sustained fractures in two places: her right hind leg and her spine,” Krishnan updated recently.

“She is still in a state of considerable shock and is not being difficult to treat, and recovery is expected to take 4-6 weeks as she is still quite young; in fact, not more than 5 months old.”

The vets have confirmed that this is the same dog from the video as she has the same injuries. As for the 23 year old students who took part in the act – they have been arrested.

In the end, the most important thing is that Bhadra is on her way to a full recovery. 🙂
