For the most part, babies and dogs are a great combination to have in any home. However, when it comes to dog breeds, Pitbulls are often judged as not being a family-friendly breed. But anyone who’s owned one knows that isn’t true. And one mother in California learned that first-hand after her family underwent a major tragedy.
Latana Chai and her child Masailah were chilling at their home when their neighbor’s house suddenly went up in flames. The fire then began to spread to Latana’s home, but she was completely unaware of the impending danger – until her pitbull Sasha began barking.
Latana heard Sasha making a commotion in the backyard, so she went to investigate. That is when Latana was shocked to see the inferno coming for her home. In the time that it took Latana to process what was happening, Sasha had already dashed into the home and to the back room where baby Masailah was sleeping.
Sasha and Masailah were born around the same time, and their bond was undeniable. As a result, Sasha, who is roughly the same size as the seven-month-old baby, grabbed Masailah by the diaper and began to drag her to safety.
Thanks to this heroic dog, the family has enough of a warning to get out in time and avoid disaster.
