To many people, it is a great concern to have a dog near a baby, in particular, those dog breeds considered as ”aggressive” ones. But this mom is thankful to her pit bull dog for saving her and her infant’s lives. Latina Chai from California underwent a shocking tragedy. The tragedy took place when she was home with her 7-month-old baby girl called Masailah.

One night of June 3, Latina heard Sasha barking and scraping at the door. She observed that Sasha’s barks were very intensive and felt anxious. She got to the conclusion that there was something going on. This was not Sasha’s usual behaviour. The mother said that her baby girl and their pet dog Sasha were only a few days apart and spent a lot of time together, and even shared the same bed and baths. But their connection would become stronger after a fire breaks out in their neighbour’s home.

”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 get to the door, she runs in and in and starts barking,”Latina said, as reported by Kare 11.
