Hero Pit Bull Warns Family Of House Fire, Drags Baby To Safety

STOCKTON, California – A Stockton woman credits her pit bull with saving her and her baby’s lives after the dog woke them up when the house caught fire.

A family was able to escape unharmed – thanks to their 8-month-old pit bull Sasha.

As flames ate away parts of the fourplex on East Yorkshire Drive, Sasha began to bang at the back door.

“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,'” owner Nana Chaichanhda told KTXL.

Chaichanhda quickly raced into the bedroom to grab her 7-month-old daughter and saw Sasha beside her.

“She had already had my baby by the diaper and was dragging her off the bed,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are you doing?'”

Fire crews responded within minutes of the initial 911 call, and though the flames only reached her attic, Chaichanhda’s home is now uninhabitable.

Chaichanhda is thankful for her pup’s heroics and hopes it changes people’s view of pit bulls as family pets.

“It meant a lot. I owe her everything. If it wasn’t for her, I would have still been in bed and things could have taken a worse turn,” Chaichanhda said.
