Meet Kabang, the heroic dog.

In Zamboanga, Philippines, a dog named Kabang, who lost half her face after jumping in front of a motorcycle to save the lives of two girls, received a rousing welcome yesterday and a parade in her honor.

The mixed-breed came back from months-long treatment at the University of California, Davis, veterinary hospital, paid for with $27,000 in donations raised in the Philippines and abroad. She was reunited with her owner, Rudy Bunggal, and the girls she saved from the accident in December 2011. Kabang and Rudy rode in the back of a pickup truck decorated with yellow balloons while Mayor Celso Lobregat bestowed the title “Pride of Zamboanga” on the dog. Motorcycles and cars took part in the motorcade that drove Kabang through the port city. Residents snapped photos of the dog and kids petted her. At the mayor’s office, Kabang was given a bag of treats. (myway.com)
