'Hero dog' returns to Philippines after face surgery

A dog that lost half her face saving two girls from an oncoming motorcycle has been treated as a hero on her return to the Philippines.

The mixed-breed dog, Kabang, who lost her snout and upper jaw in the incident in December 2011, was treated in the US.

Kabang attracted worldwide support because of her injuries, with donations from the Philippines and abroad covering her $27,000 treatment costs.
