When we speak of dogs, the first thing that comes to our mind is the word loyalty. It’s beyond believable how these creatures are willing to risk everything, including their life, for the well-being of their owners. This story that was shared by a woman named Nana Chaichanhda from Stockton, California is just another proof of how valuable a dog can be for one family, and how much joy it can bring.
The unthinkable happened when she was home with her seven month old baby girl Masailah. Masailah is about the size of the family’s pit bull, Sasha, who is eight months old.
At about midnight on June 3, the mother suddenly heard Sasha barking loudly and scratching at the backyard door. She noticed that the dog’s barks were particularly intense, and immediately felt alarmed. She knew something wasn’t right. This was very unlike the family’s gentle four-legged member.
She opened the door to see what the dog was barking at outside — and that’s when she saw black smoke and flames coming out of the neighboring house. The fire was quickly spreading to Latana’s house, writes KTVU.
What Sasha did next is now being hailed by animal lovers all over the world.
Latana ran upstairs for Masailah, but Sasha was already well on her way. Latana watched in awe how the family pit bull bit into the baby’s diaper and dragged her out of danger.
The mother could then safely take everyone to security outside. If it weren’t for Sasha’s warning, the family might have been caught in the flames.
Sasha has been around since Masailah’s birth and it’s clear that the two share a special bond. Just take a look at this news report below.
