Chennai: The dog who was was thrown off the rooftop of a three-storeyed building in July has finally recovered and found a home.

Activists had later named the dog `Bhadra`, which means the warrior, for having extraordinarily survived the fall.

On Wednesday, a Facebook post announced that Bhadra has been officially adopted by Chennai resident Karthik Dhandapani, who was fostering her since the time she was found injured.

It's ironic that the seven-month-old likes to spend her time on the terrace of her new home, given that she was flung off one.

 

In July, the video of Gowtham Sudarshan and Ashish Paul -- one throwing the dog down from the rooftop of a building and the other filming the gruesome act -- had gone viral and drew much revulsion.

The two medical students, who committed the gruesome act and filmed it, were fined Rs 2 lakh each by a committee formed by the Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Medical University.

Animal welfare activists made a police complaint and the two students were later arrested. The two got bail immediately.

 

The activists had then moved the court for compensation for the dog that suffered a leg fracture.

Bhadra has been recovered, however, she will have to live with a permanent limp as her right hind leg has been damaged beyond repair.
