Pit Bulls may not be the first dog breed you think of when it comes to child safety, but Sasha, an 8-month-old Pit Bull, saved her family's life in Stockton, CA. On the night of June 3, Nana Chaichanhda awoke to the sound of Sasha barking and banging against the back door of her apartment. When Nana opened the door, Sasha bolted in the house. For a minute, Nana was completely confused until she saw flames engulfing her neighbor's unit in their four-plex apartment and realized Sasha was trying to warn her. Nana ran straight to her bedroom to grab her 7-month-old baby, but Sasha was already in action, pulling her daughter off of the bed by her diaper. Because of Sasha, Nana was able to get out safely with her daughter, call 911, and help her neighbors get out safely as well. A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help Nana and her family get into a new home with Sasha.
