Heroic dog who lost snout saving little girl from being run over dies


Despite the successful treatment of the dog’s ailments (including a tumour), it did leave the pooch with a drastically altered appearance as most of its upper jaw and snout were unable to be saved.

Skin was taken from Kabang’s cheeks, neck and forehead to cover up exposed sensitive areas on her face during surgery to ensure her wounds would heal.

The canine’s heroic act received widespread affection from all over the world, with one nurse from Buffalo, New York, even spearheading a $27,000 (£19,000) fundraising campaign to fly Kabang to the USA and have the necessary surgery that was not available in the Philippines.

Mr Lim said that donations quickly flooded in from 45 countries.
