Pit bulls are one of the most controversial dog breeds in history. While there are many kind and sweet pit bulls these days, they were bred for their more aggressive characteristics. Sadly those traits were put to use for financial gain, none of which made it back to these poor dogs. They were forced to fight for hours on end and many died at the end of the struggle.
But their reputation is coming back, thanks to stories like this next happy one. It almost became a tragedy, but one pit bull used her strong teeth and dense, tough body to use and saved the day!
Sasha may be just eight months old, but she’s already very smart and alert. The pit bull puppy started acting strangely one day and her owner started getting annoyed.
Moments later, Sasha led her owner to the babies room where she started smelling smoke. The pup was one step ahead of mom and hopped up on the bed right away.
Sasha grabbed the baby and pulled her to safety, using those aggressive traits bred into her so long ago for the benefit of her loving family.
“I open it and she runs in and starts barking at me like crazy and I was like, ‘OK, this is weird. This is not like her,” Nana Chaichanhda told Western Journalism.
She instantly became concerned for the child, but Sasha knew exactly what to do.
“She already had my baby by the diaper and was dragging her off the bed,” Nana continued. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are you doing?'”
Sasha saved all of their lives that day and the family will never be able to repay this amazing favor for the rest of her days. They will definitely be giving her some extra love and treats from here on out though!
“It meant a lot. 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,” she said.
While the family is safe and sound, the same can’t be said for their many possessions. But any one of us would make that trade every day of the week.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help out this poor family in their time of need. While Sasha managed to save their lives, they lost thousands of dollars worth of important things as well as a variety of priceless family heirlooms.
They have luckily been able to find lodging with nearby relatives, but it will take a lot for this family to get back on their feet.
“Any and all donations will help, even if you are not able to financially donate. A share will even mean alot,” wrote the creator of the GoFundme, a cousin of the Chaichanhdas. “Thank you for all your time and support. I will be personally delivering all funds received through this gofundme to the family.”
If this campaign has struck a chord with you, consider donating to a good cause. Sometimes we all find ourselves in an unfortunate situation like this and need the help of strangers. We all need to work together to support each other in these tough times.
