Hero dog Kabang gets to go back home to Philippines

SAN FRANCISCO — A famed dog that lost her snout and upper jaw saving two girls’ lives in the Philippines was released from a California hospital Monday, officials said.

The dog – named Kabang – will be headed back to its owner in the Philippines following treatment at the University of California, Davis veterinary hospital, said UC Davis veterinary professor Frank Verstraete. Doctors at the hospital performed surgery to heal her wounds, though they could not reconstruct Kabang’s jaw or snout, Verstraete said.

“She’s a very, very happy, functional dog, and that is all that we were after,” Verstraete said.
