The road to recovery for an abused dog in Youngstown has led to a new, safe home.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The road to recovery for a severely injured dog in Youngstown has led to a new, safe home.

Jason Cooke with the Healthy Hearts and Paws Project said Mr. Wrinkles the pug was officially adopted Sunday by a woman in Brookfield.

The woman was the dog’s foster owner while it was recovering.

The animal suffered a broken jaw this past December after it was allegedly kicked.

The dog’s owner said she didn’t know who kicked Mr. Wrinkles but voluntarily surrendered him, according to the Healthy Hearts and Paws Project.

Mr. Wrinkles underwent multiple reconstructive surgeries at Countryside Veterinary in Kinsman.

No charges were ever filed in the case.

Mr. Wrinkles has recovered and is living with another rescue pug named Ling Ling.

Cooke said he is hopeful that someone will come forward with information in the case before the statute of limitations expires.
