YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A dog was released from surgery Saturday after it was severely injured.

The pug, Mr Wrinkles had to have the front portion of his jaw removed by a veterinarian.

The dog’s original owner has contacted First News saying she has received death threats over the matter. She did say she does not know who kicked the dog, but she is cooperating with the agency in their investigation.

The Healthy Hearts and Paws Project said that the owner voluntarily surrendered pug from his home in Youngstown.

According to a Facebook post, The Healthy Hearts and Paws Project has legally gained ownership of Mr Wrinkles.

Healthy Hearts and Paws was not comfortable returning the dog to the home and that is when the former owner agreed to voluntary surrender, according to the HHPP Facebook page.

The veterinarian who performed the surgery, Dr. Jeff Clayton, updated the public on Mr Wrinkles through The Healthy Hearts and Paws Project Facebook page.
