“OMG…This happened in February but amazing story so I had to share it with you. Firstly what an amazing dog for saving those children. You would think a story like this would show people how wrong it is to eat mans best friend. Secondly, how the hell did that dog survive without getting an infection whilst she was missing?? Incredible, having seen this It makes me wonder if Vucko, the dog whose face was blown off after youths taped firecrackers into his mouth; he was pts.”
In the process she literally had her face ripped off. In fact, in looking at her photo, it is hard to believe that she is alive today – hard to be imagine how she was able to survive her horrific injuries.
But she is alive and she is being hailed a hero by those who have heard her amazing story.
According to the Inquirer-News, Kabang jumped in front of a motorcycle back on December 14, just before the speeding bike ran two children, ages 11 and 9, over.
According to a witness to the dramatic event, the courageous dog threw herself in front of the motorcycle in an effort to save the children from being struck. One of the children was from Kabang’s own family – the other was the child’s cousin.
Tragically, Kabang’s heroic leap planted her snout directly into the wheel of the motorcycle. When the bike flipped, her snout and jaw was ripped from her face.
After the horrific accident, the grievously injured dog fled the scene – nobody saw her for two weeks.
But, she did eventually return home. Her family is grateful for her heroic act and they are not put off by her drastic change in appearance.
They told the Inquirer-News,
“It does not matter if she’s ugly now. What is important to us is she saved our children and we cannot thank her enough for that
Kabang came to be a part of the Bunggal family about a year ago when she was just a puppy. The family considers her more than “just a dog”.
They also believe that her heroic act which result in her permanent disfigurement, was done because she is grateful to them for taking her in.
Today, Kabang has reportedly learned to live with her disfigured face. She uses her paws to help her eat.
She is an amazing dog indeed.
