Hero Dog Saves Baby From Burning House By Pulling Her To Safety By Her Diaper

We hear negative stories about certain breeds of dogs, such as pit bulls, but they can be a courageous and loyal breed of dog as this story only proves. When Latana Chai's home caught on fire, it was her pit bull Sasha who barked until the whole house awoke, and had begun to pull Latana's seven-month-old baby Masailah out of her bed to get her to safety, before Latana could do so herself. What a heroic dog!

Latana Chai is a mother to a seven-month-old little girl named Masailah. She was just a small baby when the unthinkable happened - the family's eight-month-old pit bull, Sasha started barking.

Around midnight, Latana heard Sasha barking loudly and repeatedly banging at their backyard door in Stockton, California. Latana could tell from the frantic barks that there had to be something really wrong. Sasha was normally a very mild-mannered puppy, and this just was out of character for her.


Latana ran downstairs as fast as she could to check on Sasha and see what could be making her bark. She instantly saw what was wrong—her neighbor’s house, which belonged to her cousin, was on fire. Flames and black smoke were pouring out of the home like crazy. 

What's worse, the flames were rapidly spreading from their home to her own. Latana ran back upstairs to grab baby Masailah. But she was too late! Sasha had already gotten ahold of her by her teeth. This amazing puppy had the small infant by her diaper and was in the middle of dragging her off of her bed. 

As reported here at CBS, Latana says Sasha alerted everyone to the flames and that if she hadn’t, no one would have noticed the fire until it was too late. No one was home at her cousin’s house at the time of the fire.

Unfortunately, even though the fire only spread to Latana’s attic before being put out by firefighters, her home is currently unlivable. However, no one was hurt in the fire, thanks to this heroic animal. Check out the video below and see just why Sasha is a hero of the four-legged variety.
