A family’s pitbull not only saved her little human sister’s life but also the lives of her whole family and left her heroic act in the praises of many. Latana Chai, a mom from California, was deep asleep in the middle of the night when she heard the family dog, Sasha, barking ferociously and scratching at the backyard door repeatedly.
Latana who was sleeping with her seven month old daughter, Masailah, noticed that the pitbull’s barks were unlike his usual. Sasha sounded particularly intense, and aggravated than usual. Immediately, Katana knew something was wrong. felt alarmed. She knew something wasn’t right.
She woke up and headed out to check what was going on. She opened her door, only to be met with thick black smoke and flames coming out of her neighbor’s house and quickly spreading towards her house. Latana recalled, “As soon as I got to the door, she runs in (and) starts barking, and I’m like, ‘What the heck is wrong with you? Like, you don’t do this. I looked up and there’s black smoke coming from my neighbor’s house. You can see the flames coming out.”
It was Sasha’s next move that left everyone in awe of this gentle canine. Latana ran upstairs for her child, but Sasha was already well on her way. Latana watched in awe how her pit bull bit into her daughter’s diaper and tried to drag her out of danger. “I ran into the room and I see Sasha. She has my baby by the diaper just dragging her off the bed trying to get her to safety.” Latana said.
Latana was then able to get everyone outside where it was safe and called 911. Hers and her neighbour’s home were quite wrecked by the fire and home and all four units in the fourplex were left without electricity.
Had it not been for Sasha’s warning, the family and possibly many others might have been caught in the flames. Latana said, “(Sasha) saved everybody. Because if it wasn’t for her, I don’t think that any of us in this complex would have known anything… If she wasn’t barking or really going at the door like that, I probably wouldn’t have known nothing.”
Sasha who is eight months old, has been around since Masailah was born and the two have undoubtedly and it’s clear that the two share a special bond.

Huge Python Slithers Down Bathroom Light Just As Kids Were Brushing Their Teeth
A five- foot long python slithered out of a bathroom light as two children brushed their teeth before going to bed. The chilling incident happened at a home in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
The horrified family immediately called a snake catcher, Bryce Lockett, to remove the snake which was now hanging from the ceiling.
Lockett revealed that the children were quite shaken up but he was able to remove the snake and he eventually released it into a nearby creek after removing it from the home.
Lockett who also took photos of the python hanging from the lighting fixture said it was harmless.
“I’ve been catching snakes for about seven years now, I’ve seen them all in various situations. People are generally quite terrified of them but I’ve owned snakes my whole life so I’m not too fazed” Lockett said.
He further added that in Australia as many as one in three individuals have snakes hidden in their residences, but very few slither down light bulbs into households.
“Carpet pythons are nocturnal and coldblooded, which is why this one must have slithered down to enjoy the heat of the lamp – they’re harmless but they don’t like to be disturbed.” Lockett explained.
There was no word as to whether or not the kids could go to bed without getting nightmares after the incident.
Dog Was Surrendered To Shelter With 2 Garbage Bags Full Of His Bed And All His Toys
A dog named Wall-E, from the hit Disney movie, was first adopted from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) back in 2015.
Everyone was happy and thought that Wall-E had found his forever family and home. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The poor dog was returned to the same shelter three years later. With him, Wall-E had two garbage bags that carried his bed and all his toys.
The shelter explained in a post that the family’s decision to return the dog was a hard one, and that the family members were heartbroken and in tears when they dropped him off.
“This guy deserves a forever family who won’t give up on him. Please don’t bash his previous owners though. We don’t know the whole story. What we do know is the owner was heartbroken and crying. It was hard to finally help them leave. The staff was crying with the owners. We don’t believe this decision was taken lightly.”
“He was surrendered by his family because they did not have enough time for him. He was very scared. In his kennel, he would bark and bark.” Jordan Bader, the manager of the shelter’s Facebook page, told The Dodo.
The shelter posted a picture of Wall-E with his belongings on their Facebook page with a plea for a new home for the poor dog. The heartbreaking picture went viral.
“Here is Wall-E when he was getting surrendered by his owner. They brought all his stuff.. like it was gonna be there with him 2 months later in his kennel.” The staff wrote on the picture.
Two months after the picture was posted, a woman, named Lynn Lee, saw the post and heard about Wall-E’s story.
Lynn Lee made her way to the shelter and met the viral star. She fell in love with Wall-E instantly and decided to adopt him immediately.
Lynn Lee even brought her other dog along who formed an instant friendship with his new brother. Now, Wall-E has a home with a beautiful family that adores him.
