Here’s yet another story that proves bully breeds do not deserve the stigma.
Latana Chai, a mother from California, was home with her 7-month-old baby, Masailah, when the unthinkable happened.
Latana heard her 8-month-old pit bull, Sasha, barking loudly and banging at the door in their backyard just before midnight on June 3, 2018. The barks were so frantic and furious that Latana instantly knew something was wrong. This just wasn’t like her normally mild-mannered pup.
She ran downstairs and opened the back door to check on Sasha. That’s when she looked up and saw black smoke and flames pouring out of her neighbor’s house.
The fire was quickly spreading from her neighbor’s home to her own unit.
Latana ran back inside the house for baby Masailah — only to find Sasha already had her. She was holding the infant by the diaper and dragging her off the bed!
“[Sasha] saved everybody,” Latana told KTXL. “Because if it wasn’t for her, I don’t think that any of us in this complex would have known anything.”
Watch the video to see why Sasha is being hailed a four-legged hero.
