Pitt Bulls most often are thought of as vicious dogfighters and not chosen easily as family pets.
Sadly, this labeling does not help. More often than not, it is the owner of the dog that depicts the animal’s behavior. Sometimes we think a story is so amazing it’s worth retelling, and this one is exactly that. Get ready for a touching story about a pit bull terrier that will melt your heart.
Sasha the Pit Bull hero
Back in 2018, what could have been a horrific outcome was changed by Sasha the Pitbull who saved the family’s 7-month-old daughter. A fire broke out in the complex they lived at in Stockton, California and Sasha their pet Pit Bull who was outside that evening, woke up Nana Chaichanhda alerting her to the danger by banging on 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,’” Chaichanhda said. Upon seeing the flames mounting and destroying a part of the complex Chaichanhda decided to evacuate with her 7-month-old daughter. When she went to her daughter’s room, the Pit Bull Sasha was already there pulling her daughter off the bed trying to save her.
“She had already had my baby by the diaper and was dragging her off the bed. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are you doing?’ 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.”
