An underweight Rottweiler named Isis, was rescued from the roof of a Youngstown, Ohio, home, when neighbors spotted the malnourished pup laying on the roof with no where to go.

According to WKBN, the home owner D’Andre Berger had been staying with friend after the home had been broken into. Berger believed Isis had either ran away or been taken by the intruders, but he never bothered to go back home to look for his pet.

The desperate dog climbed through a hole in the roof in an attempt to get outside. Once stranded on the top of the home, she was too scared to climb back inside the house. Thankfully, her fear to move was what saved her life.

Neighbors called authorities and firefighters, along animal control officers, arrived at the home located on South Jackson Street and rescued the pet.

A firefighter climbed on the roof, grabbed Isis, and got her down to safety. She was fed on the spot and later taken to animal control.

Mahoning County Deputy Dog Warden Dave Nelson said the pet is about 30 pounds underweight. Berger signed the dog over to the county and once Isis is healthy again she will be placed for adoption.
