CAMPE VERDE, Ariz. - Looks like the adorable otter pup who was rescued last week is doing just fine at her new home.

The pup captured internet hearts last week after SRP workers pulled her from an Arizona canal. She was handed over to the Arizona Game & Fish Department and arrived at the Out of Africa Wildlife Park on April 26.

The park shared an update Friday saying she was seen by a veterinarian and weighed just 2 pounds 9 ounces.
