Hero Dog Heads Back to the Philippines
Updated: Monday, June 3 2013, 05:55 PM CDT
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) --
A famed dog that lost her snout and upper jaw saving two girls' lives is heading back to the Philippines after treatment at a California hospital.
The dog -- named Kabang -- was released Monday from the University of California, Davis veterinary hospital.
Kabang had her snout and upper jaw sheared off in December 2011 when she jumped in front of a motorcycle in the Philippines. Newspapers in the Philippines reported she saved the lives of her owner's daughter and niece, who were apparently in the path of the oncoming cycle.
UC Davis veterinary professor Frank Verstraete says doctors were able to heal her wounds and treat other ailments during her seven-month stay at the hospital, but unable to reconstruct her snout and jaw.
Kabang will return to her owner in the Philippines.
