Nana Chaichanhda said that her dog, Sasha, kept barking and even threw her weight into the back door to alert her that the house was on fire.
“I open it and she runs in and starts barking at me like crazy and I was like, ‘Okay, this is weird. This is not like her’,” Chaichanhda said.
Chaichanhda finally noticed her cousins home next door was up in flames. She rushed inside to get her 7-month-old daughter when she saw the dog already had the baby by the diaper and was trying to drag the child to safety.
“She had already had my baby by the diaper and was dragging her off the bed,” she told FOX40. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are you doing?'”
Firefighters responded within minutes of the 911 call, and though the flames only reached her attic, Chaichanhda’s home is now uninhabitable. Her cousin was not home at the time of the fire.
“I owe sasha my life and my children’s,” Chaichanhda said. “She saved us all. She is our hero. Without her, we probably would’ve never made it out. Both our homes were condemned by the fire.”
