When a neighbors home suddenly bursts into flames, one mother and her seven-month-old baby are remarkably able to escape without a scratch. And the hero responsible for their quick response is none other than the family dog.
Though pit bulls generally get a bad rap, eight-month-old Sasha proves that she comes from an incredibly brave and loyal bunch. When the night suddenly heats up for her family in Stockton, California, she’s the first “bark” to the rescue.
While Latana Chai and her infant Masailah were sleeping soundly one night, Sasha noticed that the neighbor’s house had caught on fire. As the inferno threatened to spill over to the Chai household, Sasha leaped into action.
By barking wildly and banging on the door with her paws, Sasha was able to wake Latana. But this puppy wasn’t done with her heroic deeds. As Latana ran back inside to grab Masailah, she found that Sasha was already there, dragging the baby to safety by grabbing hold of her diaper.
