The pup was found at the Marine Room restaurant just before employees opened up, so they called Sea World, who came and rescued the 8-month old girl.

She weighed just 20 pounds, which is about half of what the animal should weigh at that age — and even though she’s really, REALLY cute (below), you can tell she needs help:

A Sea World spokesperson informed reporters they are “cautiously optimistic” that the pup will be OK, adding:

“We hope to get her rehabilitated and back out into the wild. She’s getting lots of fluids.”

That’s a relief!

The restaurant’s manager, Matt Caponi, said he thinks the pup got in through a back door left open earlier that morning by a restaurant employee:

“Maybe [she] thought we were open for high-tide breakfast, but we weren’t. We told [her] to come back for the weekend.”

LOLz!!!

She’s just the cutest though, isn’t she (below)?!

Now let’s just hope she gets the care she needs!
