Pit bull saves baby from fire

Latana Chai lived with her two daughters and an 8-month-old pit bull named Sasha in a fourplex on East Yorkshire Drive in Stockton, California.

Sasha was outside in the back yard, on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Just before midnight, the dog made a ruckus, repeatedly throwing herself against the back door and wouldn’t stop barking until her owner came outside.

That’s when Chai saw that a raging fire was spreading from a neighbor’s complex over to her home.

Chai rushed into her home to save her 7-month-old baby, but Sasha was already in the baby’s room, dragging the baby by the diaper to safety.

Chai said: “I ran into the room and I see Sasha. She has my baby by the diaper just dragging her off the bed — trying to get her to safety. I grab my baby. I grab Sasha. And, I grabbed my phone and I called 911.”

Chai credits the dog’s barking for saving all of their lives: “(Sasha) saved everybody. Because if it wasn’t for her, I don’t think that any of us in this complex would have known anything… If she wasn’t barking or really going at the door like that, I probably wouldn’t have known nothing.”

We have to rescue this dog, get her out of California. I’ll take her. My cat wouldn’t approve but he’d get over it. Pits have a bad rap but they have to be conditioned to be vicious. All the pit bulls I’ve known have been very sweet, love machines. People in pit bull suits

Pit bulls are a hearty breed and each dog can have its own personality. My landlord has a brown and white pit bull he rescued from a shelter. She barks occasionally. While a neighbor down the street has a black pit bull and she is friendly yet never barks, and doesn’t want to move when it gets too hot outside.
Pit bulls are a very loyal breed!

I’m so happy her dog alerted her family, if not the family and others in the fourplex probably die of smoke inhalation in their sleep!
Dogs can be so loyal to their human pack and will defend them in trouble times.

My son and some of his buddies bought an old motor home, here in MI, and went on the road a number of years back, playing music. One of the part time jobs they took, to help make ends meet, was at a Pit Bull rescue place in the south somewhere. There were like 150 Pit Bulls. He said that they would lay on the ground with them, and the dogs would just roll around with them and play and lick their faces and such. I remember growing up the scary dog was the German Shepherd, and then the Doberman.… Read more »

How did the baby get on the floor so Sasha could drag?
Why was mom in the backyard at midnight on Sunday? And why, being outside already did mom not notice a raging fire so nearby?
Why is this article posted a year after-the-fact?
