Having a dog around a small helpless baby around certain dog breeds with a reputation for being “aggressive”can cause some concern. Pit bull dogs in particular are probably top of the list as they are often viewed as unpredictable and often dangerous.
The unthinkable happened when mom Latana Chaiwas was home with her seven month old baby girl Masailah. Masailah is about the size of the family’s pit bull, Sasha, who is eight months old. Born just days apart they pair spent every moment together, sharing a bed and even a bath.
It was around midnight one Saturday night when Latana noticed Sasha behaving very strangely. “I heard like, a loud bang and I was like, ‘what’s going on?’ I heard Sasha crying and she kept jumping at the door. As soon as I got to the door, she runs in and starts barking,” Nana said
Once she opened the door to let Sasha in she ran to Masailah’s room. As she noticed black smoke coming from the ceiling, a fire from their neighbours house was spreading to theirs. Nana jumped up, let the dog inside, and saw the terrible danger headed towards them.
“At that moment I opened the back door and Sasha ran into our home, straight into our bedroom,” she explains.I looked up and there’s black smoke coming from my neighbor’s house. You can see the flames coming out. I ran into the room and I see Sasha. She has my baby by the diaper just dragging her off the bed — trying to get her to safety.”
Mom Latana quickly rushed to her baby’s room and found Sasha grabbing Masailah by the diaper and pulling her to safety. Nana shared her feelings about her sweet puppy: “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.”
The family are grateful for Sasha’s barking which helped warn and keep them all safe.
