Here at Animals Being Cute, it’s important to us that our readers understand something — there is a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to Pitbulls. Many people think Pitbulls are born violent and dangerous. Well, that’s simply not true. For example, let’s talk about the Pitbull in California that saved her baby sister from a house fire by carrying her outside using her diaper.
Almost exactly a year ago, just after midnight, Nana Chaichanhda noticed something strange. Her 8-month-old Pitbull Sasha came to the back door of her home in Stockton, California — barking like crazy and beating on the door.
When Nana opened the door to see why Sasha was behaving so strangely, the Pitbull darted inside. It was about that time that Nana noticed that her building was on fire.
You see, Nana shared the building, a four-plex, with other members of her family. The fire was predominantly in her cousin’s apartment — for now.
It wouldn’t take long, however, for it to reach Nana and her babies.
By the time Nana reached her 7-month-old daughter’s room, Sasha was already there. You see, the fantastic Pitbull ran straight to her baby sister’s room — she wasn’t going to let the fire hurt Masailah.
Sasha had grabbed Masailah by the diaper and was already on her way out the door.
Nana said she wasn’t surprised by the dog’s reaction. According to her, Masailah and Sasha are best friends — they even take baths together.
Sasha’s mom explained that usually the dog doesn’t stay outside, but Nana’s very grateful that she was that night. Because Sasha was out there, her reaction time saved everyone’s life.
RETHINK WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT PITBULLS
Now, Sasha’s story isn’t the first time we have talked about a Pitbull saving a life. Nana shared Sasha’s diaper story, though, because we still have quite a hill to climb when it comes to these dogs.
“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,” explained Nana.
Indeed, Nana shared this story about a Pitbull rescuing her daughter by the diaper for one reason: we all need to re-think what we suppose we know about these dogs.
