On the 27th of December, 2013, a resident of Skudai, Johor discovered a dog with a disfigured face and contacted MDDB. Innumerable maggots squirmed around what used to be the dog's snout. A distress notice was immediately posted on our Facebook page to alert nearby community volunteers.

It did not take long for one of our followers to respond to the emergency. She admitted the dog at a vet in Johor who administered morphine in the dog for pain relief. The vet was clueless as to how old is the dog due to its missing teeth.
Two days later, the poor soul was transported from Johor to Petaling Jaya, Selangor where its facial mass and the dead skin surrounding the wound were surgically removed. The vet also got rid of every single maggot that was eating its flesh. Fortunately, its facial bone structures were not damaged, and the dog merely lost its button nose. Its nostrils are still intact, which means the dog will not have difficulties eating or drinking.
On New Year's Day, this little tyke earned herself a name to suit her perky, jaunty personality - HAPPY! Well, despite the severe pain and misfortune, she is, after all, still... HAPPY!
Happy is currently receiving long-term treatment at the veterinary clinic. She will continue to undergo minor skin graft surgeries to guide the growth of her new skin. If you would like to contribute to the fund to help offset Happy's medical expenses, kindly refer to the details below:
