Nana Chaichanhda, a Californian mother, was woken up at 10 pm by her 8-month-old pit bull, on June 3.
She and her seven-month-old daughter were sleeping peacefully when they woke up with a start when they heard continuous banging on their backyard door.
The dog was trying to warn her owners of the fire that had been raging outside the house. Her fourplex apartment had been on fire, so much so that the neighbors’ home was destroyed. The fire was racing fastly towards their house when the dog set into action.
As soon as Nana opened the door to see what the disturbance was, the dog named Sasha ran inside the room to Nana’s daughter.
Nana said that it was then that she realized that her cousin’s home next door was on fire when she saw that, she too rushed towards her bedroom. When she reached the room, she saw that Sasha was dragging Nana’s daughter by her diaper.
She then took her daughter and Sasha, and went out of the house and dialed 911.
She said, “If it weren’t for Sasha then we would have never made out of the house alive, she is our hero, our savior.”
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they were able to rescue the entire building but failed to save Nana’s and her cousin’s apartment. Nana and family are currently staying with one of their relatives who live in the same building as them.
Nana has registered herself on GoFundMe so that she can raise money to get herself back on her feet after losing almost everything in that devastating fire. The funds that she would raise from the account would be used for their necessities.
