Oh my gosh, she's even had puppies during the last year.

Kabang has been living and loving for almost a year in her current state, including giving birth after saving her two human family members. Any comments to give up on her, when she has clearly not given up and is the picture of loving, life-filled energy, are at a minimum, disrespectful, and at a maximum, deranged.

All in the name of sensationalism and publicity.

I can't believe the hypocrisy. Every other owner would be blasted for not having an unspayed dog and how irresponsible it is to have an "oops" litter but this dog is being celebrated as "hero" and "supermom" on top of that because she gave a litter right after she saved the kids.

Unbelievable how much suffering she was and still is put through.

Honestly, I doubt she will make it through the heart worm and cancer treatment-but if she does, she is just going to be a science experiment.

pretty much. Here is a very short clip of what it actually looks like. Don't watch it if you have a weak stomach.



and here she is with the litter of puppies.

Maybe it is just me but looking at the pictures in the press kit, she doesn't seem to be miserable. In fact, just the opposite. If she wasn't missing her snout/upper jaw, she appears to be acting just like any other dog.

If she's able to somehow eat, be happy, playful, etc, I wouldn't put her to sleep. Without actually seeing her in person though, I'm hesitant to make any kind of judgement (though it does anger me she was allowed to whelp a litter - her immune system has already got to be taxed from fighting off infection attempting to take hold in an open wound, and they let her get pregnant??? And she still isn't spayed, she was wearing a diaper in the press photos, doesn't going into heat, pregnancy, birthing, etc, all tend to suppress the immune system? If they want to keep this dog alive they should be looking at the long term. I know surgery is rough on the immune system, but...geez).

I just can't imagine what life would be like for her not being able to smell. That's the primary way a dog experiences the world. It's like if we lose our vision. It's devastating. We can get by without it, of course, but it's a huge alteration to our daily life. And there's more...how do I say it...substance, maybe? There's more substance to our lives? We do more than eat, play, sleep, poop. Well, most of us, anyway.

I don't know. I can't honestly say what would happen if this was my dog. I think this is kind of one of those one-in-a-million things. It's miracle she wasn't killed instantly, a miracle she didn't bleed out or die from the trauma minutes/hours later, it's a miracle infection hasn't taken hold and killed her, it's a miracle the complications that has to have brought on hasn't killed her. If this kind of injury happened to any one of our dogs I very much doubt we'd be in a situation where we'd even have to decide whether to PTS or not.

I agree that the appearance of the dog is very disturbing, however she does not look like she is suffering and totally miserable. Animals lose different body parts and still live fulfilling life. I would have never thought that a dog in this condition could raise a litter, but she did. I dealt with vets at teaching hospitals, and they care about the animals very much. They would not intentionally make the animal suffer. I think that it up to the people who interact with the dog it judge the quality of life of the animal. The Internet public can chose whether to financially support or not.
There are many humans whose face is disfigured and they can chose to end their own life. They don't. You can google face transplants to see some before and after photos. Face injuries are particularly obvious and disfiguring, causing a strong reaction from the public.

I agree 110%.

I personally know many dogs that have 'parts' missing. Blind, deaf, 3 legged - and they still enjoy life.

Google "Chihuahua no legs" and see all the 2-legged Chis out there living life and loving it!

I saw that she had puppies.That is just messed up. How could she care for a litter of pups with a face like that????!!!! She couldn't clean them properly,nor mention how hard it would have been to pant properly whilst it whelp.She wouldn't be able to scent her family or anything....

I agree that the dog should be PTS.It's not fair for her to keep on living life in pain and at a high risk of infections.

Update on this dog:

After extensive efforts and reconstructing the nasal holes, this dog went back to the Philippines.
