When House Goes Up In Flames, Pit Bull Saves Infant From The Fire

We constantly hear stories concerning the “bully breeds.” This certainly includes pit bulls, a breed that way too often gets looked down upon. But when there is a story of heroism and courage, you may find that this particular breed is way above average!

Latana Chai is a mother to a seven-month-old little girl. Masailah was just a small baby when the unthinkable happened. Latana owns a young eight-month-old pit bull named Sasha.

Around midnight of June 3rd, 2018, Latana heard Sasha barking loudly and repeatedly banging at their backyard door.

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.

Worst yet, 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!

“She saved everybody,” Latana later told KTXL, referencing her puppy. She believes that 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 pooch!
