A Paradise dog is back home after she fell into an abandoned basement and survived on rainwater for two months.

On April 29th Paradise police found an emaciated dog in the bottom of an abandoned basement, roughly seven feet down. The dog was in poor condition and immediately taken to a local vet for treatment.

Animal Control officials were able to identify the dog as Nalla and found out she had been reported missing on February 28.

Police say Nalla fell into the opening and was likely able to survive by drinking rainwater.

Nalla weighed 70 pounds and when she was found she was down to 26 pounds. She's back home recovering and has gained 10 pounds since she was rescued.
