A family’s Pit Bull saved their lives after a deadly fire broke out in their apartment complex. The 8-month-old dog named Sasha was so intent on rescuing the family that she began dragging their 7-month-old daughter by her diaper to get her to safety.
Nana Chaichanhda of Stockton, California said Sasha was outside when the fire started and began to bang on the back door to be let inside.
“I open it and she runs in and starts barking at me like crazy and I was like, ‘OK, this is weird. This is not like her,’” Chaichanhda told FOX40.
After she noticed the flames, Chaichanhda went to get her 7-month-old daughter and saw that Sasha had already beaten her to it.
“She had already had my baby by the diaper and was dragging her off the bed,” she told FOX40. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are you doing?'”
Thanks to Sasha, the family got out in time, but they can’t go back to their apartment for the time being.
But Chaichanhda said she is grateful that Sasha acted when she did or things could have been a lot worse.
