Kabang, the Hero Dog
Last December, Kabang heroically saved the lives of two little girls.  Dina Bunggal, 9, and cousin Princess Diansing, 3, were crossing a busy street in Zamboanga City, Philippines when the family dog saw a motorcycle barreling down on the girls.
Kabang leaped in front of a motorcycle that was about to hit them and saved the girls. The horrific injury that resulted from her heroic act is heart wrenching to look at.
As Kabang knocked the motorist off the bike, her upper snout got caught in the wheel.  The bike flipped over, and took Kabang’s snout with it. Miraculously, Kabang survived the accident.

Despite being in excruciating pain, both Kabang and her family did not give up hope.  The local authorities tried take Kabang to be euthanized, but the family wouldn’t allow it.  Instead, they embarked a campaign to help their family hero.  After all, Kabang has her own family to look after now… in April, she gave birth to a litter of puppies.
