DAVIS,CA – We often hear about pets who put their lives in danger to keep their owners safe, but this next story about a hero dog from the Philippines has most of those stories beaten by a nose… or lack of one.
The heroic act has left this brave little dog horribly disfigured. She literally had half her face ripped off. But, that isn’t keeping Kabang from having a good time in the warm California sun were she’s now getting treated for her injuries.
Kabang is your basic mutt who was hailed a hero in the Philippines after she saved the lives of two young girls by throwing herself in the path of a speeding motorcycle. The girls were knocked to safety, but Kabang wasn’t so lucky. She lost her snout and upper jaw in the accident.
Greatful for the dog’s heroic act but too poor to get her proper medical treatment, Kabang’s family shipped the pooch over to the University of California in Davis. So far, over $20,000 has been raised online after people heard about Kabang.
