Have you been following the story of Kabang — the dog that saved two little girls from being hit by a motorcycle and had her upper jaw ripped off in the process?
The 2-year-old mixed breed dog was injured in the Philippines, but funds were raised to bring the dog to the University of California, Davis, where she is to receive facial reconstructive surgery. The surgery has been postponed, the Daily News reports today, due to the need to treat an aggressive tumor and heartworm.
Despite everything, the veterinarians say her prognosis for survival is good.
The dog's injuries are hard to look at, but you can see she's happy to be alive. It's amazing what the will to live can overcome.
