The dog who was thrown from the roof top of a multi-storey building near Chennai has been rescued and is being treated at Tamil Nadu Veterinary University Hospital in Chennai.

After the video went viral, animal welfare activists, including Antony Clement Rubin and Jennifer Jacob, lodged a complaint with police which registered an FIR and launched a search for them.

Luckily the dog was located by animal rights activist Shravan Krishnan.

The dog had suffered some fracture on its two legs and has been given medical attention and its condition is improving.
