A dog who saved 2 young girls last February will soon enplane to the U.S. for surgery.

A dog named Kabang (Spotty) who saved 2 girls, Dina Bunggal, 11, and Princess Diansing, 3, in Zamboanga, Philippines, last F ebruary will be brought to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital in Davis, California for reconstructive surgery.

Kabang jumped herself on the way in front of an speeding motorcycle, saving in the process the life of 2 kids, who fell over but suffered minor bruises. But Kabang was unlucky. Her head hit the vehicle’s wheel and as it rolled Kabang’s upper snout got stuck into it and was ripped off. The bones holding the snout were crushed and nothing could be done to save them.

Despite the injury, the dog managed to survive and soon was pregnant. But, veterinarians have expressed fears that her open wound and bones are at risk of fungal infection.Kabang's best chance for complete recovery is surgery in the United States.

Cost of the dog’s travel and treatment is placed at about $20 thousand. To raise money for the purpose, concerned persons and animal welfare organizations have joined hands in this worthy endeavor, according to Zamboanga Today.
