Rikrik was found near a reservoir with open wounds around his mouth. The veterinarian determined that someone had bound his muzzle with something very tightly. The wounds were extremely serious and life-threatening. His mouth was so damaged that he could not eat properly.
Rikrik received emergency plastic surgery, then he was watched carefully by volunteers at Animal Defenders Indonesia, our #MonthlyMojo shelter for April. The weeks passed by, and his wounds slowly healed. As he recovered his health, he also recovered his playfulness. He is now completely out of the woods and very, very happy to be around the other dogs at the shelter. He will be well cared for and loved until a family can be found for him.
