Unfortunately, pit bulls don’t have a good reputation, and that’s because most of the owners are either irresponsible and don’t properly train them or they abuse the poor dogs… But the ones that get to live in a loving family and who learn how to be good boys (and girls), they’re real-life heroes, like this puppy!
Her name is Sasha, and she is only 8-months-old. She has just saved her whole family from a fire that was rapidly spreading to the house. You won’t believe what she did!
20. Sasha, the Hero
On June 3, Sasha, the 8-month-old pit bull started to bark at the door. She was desperately trying to wake up her family. Near their house, a fire started to spread and was rapidly heading to her family’s house…
19. Barking At the Door
Nana Chaichanhda, the owner of the pit bull, says that she woke up confused, and opened the door. Then, Nana said: ‘she runs in and starts barking at me like crazy and I was like, ‘OK, this is weird. This is not like her.’
18. Something Was Wrong
Nana explained that whenever the pup got inside the house, she usually ‘struts in and goes straight to the couch and lays down… but I opened the back door and she just started barking at me.’ Something was not right!
17. The House Was in Flames
Nana and her cousin lived next to each other. Her cousin’s house was in flames and by the time Nana realized what was happening, Sasha got into the room of Nana’s 7-month-old daughter Masailah. You won’t believe what she did!
16. We’re Out Of Here!
‘She [Sasha] had already had my baby by the diaper and was dragging her off the bed,’ said Nana. The mother took the baby and Sasha by the collar, and they went outside. She then started yelling, and Sasha did something unexpected…
15. Checking For The Rest of the Family
‘Both my aunts and my cousin live in apartments there. I started yelling, ‘Fire! Fire!’ And then Sasha ran back in,’ said Nana. It seems that Sasha went inside the house to check for others inside the house. The fire was raging…
14. Sasha Was Inside The Building!
The dog was looking for the two older children, but they were not inside the house, says Nana: ‘They weren’t home, they were visiting their dad at the time, but Sasha didn’t know that.’ Then, firefighters arrived.
13. ‘Where’s Sasha?’
‘The smoke was so bad. I kept yelling, ‘Where’s Sasha?’ and the firefighters said there’s no dog in there. But I knew Sasha was in the house.’ The fire was finally put out, and Chai could return to the apartment and check for her dog…
12. She’s Alive!
Sasha was hidden in a closet! ‘My kids love to play hide and seek and that’s their hiding spot. She was in their hiding spot. When I found her, I started crying, I hugged her, I kissed her; I was so emotional,’ said Nana.
11. A Great Bond
It might surprise everyone, but Nana knows that Sasha is a special pup who adores her family. Usually, Nana doesn’t keep Sasha outside at night, but this time she’s happy she did because, without Sasha’s barks, they couldn’t have escaped in time.
10. Sasha Saved Her Family
‘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,’ said Nana. Her sister set up a GoFundMe page and in just 11 days, people have donated over the goal they set!
9. Mother of Three
Nana is single, raising all her three children: a 9-year-old son, an 8-year-old daughter, and Masailah. She has to find a new place to live and wait for the authorities to investigate the cause of the fire. As for Sasha, she said this heartbreaking thing…
8. A Confused Family
The children live with their father until they can find a new place. Sasha ‘…misses the kids and sleeping in their beds. I take the kids over there so Sasha doesn’t cry all day,’ said Nana. The kids also started asking questions…
7. Amazing People
Thankfully, the donations from some amazing people are well over $6,000, the initial goal. Nana’s older children asked ‘Where are we going to live?’ and ‘Are we going to be homeless?’ Now, she can at least rest easy and reassure them that everything will be alright!
6. Another Pit Bull Hero
Sasha is not the only hero of the day. A few weeks ago, a little girl named Charlee Campbell went missing in the morning from her grandmother’s home. Nobody could find her for two whole days. But she wasn’t alone!
5. Penny Was Around
The grandmother, Beth Campbell, explained that the little girl went missing, but she saw that the family dog, Penny, was also missing. This is what she said… You won’t believe how they found the girl!
4. She’ll Stay By Her Side
Beth hoped that Penny ‘was not going to leave that baby until she got here. This is our hero right here.’ And indeed she stayed with the toddler until people found them and got them back home!
3. A Happy Grandmother
The grandmother said that she ‘can’t even explain how happy that I am that this baby is home, because I love her more than anything in this world.’ She said that she’s already prepared many treats for both Penny and Charlee!
2. Hamburgers for Penny
She also said that Penny would get her share of hamburgers as a way to show her gratitude for staying by the toddler’s side. The family was fortunate to find the girl. Wayne Brown saw the girl in his backyard!
1. They Were Looking for the Girl…
The authorities set up search teams and even passed by Brown’s backyard, but they didn’t see the little girl. As Brown was sitting on his sofa watching the news on the missing girl, he saw her in his backyard! He was so relieved and happy that the girl was safe and sound!
