We all know that dogs are capable of some amazing things, but sometimes they get the opportunity to prove it in a great way, writes blog.theanimalrescuesite.greatergood
That was the situation with Kabang, who saved two girls from a motorbike accident. It happened in the Philippines in 2012, and we are sad to inform that Kabang has died.
Dr. Anton Lim, the dog’s veterinarian, made the announcement, saying that Kabang died quietly in her sleep. Her owner died in 2015, and she has being cared after by the veterinarian ever since.
Kabang was born in 2008 and became a hero in 2012 after saving two youngsters from being hit by a motobike. Unfortunately, the small puppy lost her snout as a result of the incident.
Many people were moved by what this small dog accomplished, so she was named an ambassador of dogwill and an official emblem of pet ownership. She was also an outspoken opponent of animal abuse.
People from around the world heard about what Kabang did, so she was flown to the United States for snout reconstruction.
She was treated at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, according to CBS13.
Along with reconstructing her snout, they also treated other issues during the five-hour procedure.
Kabang survived to the age of 13, which is an unusually long life for a dog. She will be sorely missed.
