Almost everyone loves dogs, a lot of families have at least one in their home. Some people even say that you can never trust someone who doesn’t like dogs because they are considered to be a man’s best friend, and that is true in a lot of different ways.
Dogs have scientifically proven that they have the power to lift up humans’ emotions, they bring joy to everyone without even trying. However, being a companion and a loyal family member are not the only things dogs are known to do, because they have also proven that they could be reliable in a lot of different ways and in a lot of different situations.
Even during hundreds of years ago, dogs have played a huge part in the military which is why they are still training dogs nowadays to help them out especially when it comes to locating bombs and all that. This is because the dogs’ senses are multiple times better than humans, which make them very efficient, they are often known as K-9, and hundreds of them are deployed along with the military in U.S. bases in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Dogs are also known to become very useful when it comes to danger such as fire. For so many years now, news spread that a dog saves their owner from a house fire. Despite how many times people see this news, it is still something to be happy about since most people wouldn’t dare risk their lives for someone, and yet dogs would try. Dogs are also the ones who are alerting their human families when there is a fire.

Pit Bull Saves Baby From Fire
A pit bull named Sasha in Stockton, California just saved a 7-month-old baby from a fire. Reports said that the pit bull alerted the family about the fire at their apartment complex. The dog managed to drag the baby by her diaper, the owner of the house, Nana Chaichanhda said that when the fire broke out, her 8-month-old Sasha was outside and started banging the door and Nana said that she opened it and her dogs just ran in, which is unusual.
It was then she realized that the apartment was on fire. Nana’s first instinct is to grab her baby from the room but what she saw actually shocked her, it turns out that her dog Sasha was already dragging her baby from the bed to save her and get them out of the apartment.
Thanks to her pit bull, her family actually made it out of the apartment they were living in without getting hurt but sadly, the apartment is no longer inhabitable. The Stockton Fire Department said in an interview with Fox that they are still trying to figure out and investigate the cause of the fire even further. Nana said that she owes her dog a lot because if Sasha didn’t alert them, they would’ve stayed in the room and worse things could’ve possibly happened to her and her family.
Why Pit Bulls Are Misunderstood?
Saving a baby from a fire is definitely such a heroic thing to do, especially if it’s a dog. Unfortunately, not everyone thinks that pit bulls are exactly the ideal family dog. One of the most common misconceptions about these adorable pit bulls is the thought that they are incredibly violent compared to the usual family dogs like the golden retriever or a labrador.
Sadly, this is because of how people back a couple of decades ago, have found a way of exploiting these pit bulls’ behavior by training them to fight and making them fight with other pit bulls, just like what they do with roosters on a cockpit. Their appearance made it even easier for people to think that pit bulls are extremely violent, making it not ideal for families to have them, especially around children no babies. Unfortunately, pit bulls are on the list of animals that are not allowed as pets and some cities in the United States even ban them. However, if only they were given a chance to become
Animal experts say that every creature can be dangerous and violent if they were raised and trained to be that way, and that includes every breed of dog and even humans. If you raise a child to be violent and dangerous, then that child will surely become one, and dogs, as well as other some other animals, can be one too. Some animal experts even consider this as racism against dogs, just like how some people would think that a black person would cause harm just because of their color.
