If any breed needed a PR company it’s the Pitbull Terrier. Some of the sweetest, most playful dogs in daycare at Dogtopia are Pitbulls, but we’ve all seem the horrible stories that can be associated with this breed.
So this was a welcomed story to see:
Pit Bull Saves Family of Five from NBCWashington.com
The smoke alarms started going off, but it wasn’t until a pit bull started barking that her family woke up and discovered a fire in the basement of their Alexandria home.
The fire, which started close to 1 a.m. Saturday morning in the two-story duplex at 37 South Gordon Street, started inside the dryer vent, according to officials. It was spreading inside a wall behind the washer and dryer when a plastic water line ruptured and partly put the blaze out.
The family said that it was their pit bull, Jasmine, who alerted them to the fire.
Damage to the home is estimated at $20,000. Alexandria fire department workers installed new smoke alarms in the home.
The family and Jasmine have made plans to stay with family and friends.
A massive Horray! for Jasmine and we’re happy to hear she and every member of her family safe!
