Yes, indeed, Sasha, pictured above, is a pit bull.
She’s in the news, but not for a bad reason. She’s a hero by anybody’s standards.
If not for her, a family might have been consumed by flames.
Sasha, an 8-month-old pit bull, was sitting outside of her Stockton, California, home Sunday, June 3 when flames began to engulf the apartment building. Sasha’s owner, Nana Chaichanhda, and her baby were inside.
The quick-thinking dog jumped into action, alerting Chaichanhda about the fire before she even realized the blaze herself. The fire eventually destroyed most of the four-plex, but not before Sasha helped get her family out.
