The dog (above) lost her snout and upper jaw after she jumped in front of a speeding motorcycle to save two girls, and while she had been diagnosed with cancer, she has now beat it!!
The doggie, who's name is Kabang was brought to the University of California, Davis from the Philippines, where the vets are in the process of trying to fix her injuries.
And to everyone's surprise, her cancer disappeared. However, the hero pooch is still waiting to undergo treatment for heartworms in her arteries before the gap in her face can be closed.
Kabang is currently in the care of veterinarian Gina Davis, and even though she revealed that "it will be one to two months for her to recover from that before she goes in and has the surgery," Davis thinks she's gonna be just fine!!
Now that's a true trooper!!
