DAVIS, CALIF. – A veterinarian at the University of California, Davis, has some good news about a dog from the Philippines who became an international hero after sacrificing her snout to save two young girls.
Veterinarian Gina Davis tells the San Francisco Chronicle the dog named Kabang appears to have beaten the cancer she was suffering from.
Kabang, however, is still facing treatment for heartworms in her arteries before she can have the gaping wound on her face closed.
Newspapers in the Philippines have reported that Kabang had her snout and upper jaw sheared off when she jumped in front of a speeding motorcycle, saving her owner’s daughter and niece who were apparently about to be hit.
Kabang ended up in Davis earlier this year after a nurse from Buffalo, N.Y., spearheaded a fundraising campaign to bring her to the U.S.
Little innocent Bitsy, passed away. Sweet lovable little pup she was. Had the strength to live for 13 days, unfortunately being the runt of the litter and being squeezed in with five other little innocents, her chest area, digestive system and elimination system, just could not handle it.
Bitsy, couldn’t even feed off of mommy, Twiggy, she had to be hand feed her formula with antibiotics. Bitsy was no bigger than A croissant one could purchase. A gamer even with the hand, or should say puppy paw, she was dealt.
For those out there in the interwebby, should your “mans” [GENERIC] “best friend” be in similar straights, rest assured that a beautiful little tri-color Pembroke Welsh Corgi, will be most gracious IF and WHEN the same heartbreaking situation occurs with your “mans best friend”.
JUNEAU, Alaska — Black bears in residential neighborhoods aren’t exactly unheard of in Juneau. While many people stay inside when bears are about, one local woman says she had a different instinct when she saw her dog was in trouble.
It started out as a typical evening for 22-year-old Brooke Collins. She let her dogs out as usual but this time, she said there was a black bear outside who took hold of her dachshund Fudge. She said she feared for her pet’s life and, in an instant, ran over and punched the bear right in the face to make it let go.
“It was all so fast. All I could think about was my dog was going to die,” said Collins.
“It was a stupid thing but I couldn’t help it,” she said. “I know you’re not supposed to do that but I didn’t want my dog to be killed.”
