House Fire Nearly Takes Baby’s Life — Until Her Dog Comes To The Rescue

Font Size:

A pit bull alerted her owner of a house fire and attempted to drag a baby to safety Sunday night in Stockton, California.

The dog, Sasha, barked which alerted her owner to the fire. Sasha then pulled the family’s 8-month-old baby girl to safety by her diaper, according to ABC 7.

Sasha’s owner, Latana Chai, was outside when she heard the barking.

“I ran into the room and I see Sasha, she has my baby like, by the diaper, just dragging her off the bed trying to get her to safety,” Chai, told ABC 7.

The fire was spreading from her neighbor’s home to hers.

At 8-months-old Sasha is the same age as the baby. Chai says that the two have been close all their lives.

“If she wasn’t barking or really going at the door like that, I probably wouldn’t have known anything,” Chai said, crediting her dog with saving her daughter’s life.
