Hero Dog Loses Snout Saving Girls


Meet Kabang, the miracle dog – via HLN:

It’s hard to look at Kabang the dog without getting kind of sad. Her injuries look so painful — she’s missing the entire top part of her snout. Perhaps it would make you feel better to know that she is on the mend, and will soon be on her way home.

About a year and a half ago in her native Philippines, Kabang saved two young girls from getting hit by a motorcycle, according to HLN affiliate KXTV. She ran in front of the vehicle, sacrificing herself. She survived, but not without serious damage to her snout.

For the last few months, she has been in the care of doctors at William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital in Davis, California. Although the doctors could not rebuild her broken face, they were able to repair her nostrils and eyelids and make changes to keep the wound from getting infected. Additionally, Kabang got treatment for heartworms and a tumor. The whole thing was paid for through Care for Kabang, a private organization founded specifically in the hero dog’s honor.

Now, as healthy and happy as she can be, Kabang is heading home. She will be returned to her owner’s home in the Philippines soon.
