Thanks to pet pit bull, Stockton baby and mom are alive

Stockton woman credits her pit bull with saving her and her baby’s lives after the dog woke them up when the house caught fire. Latana Chai said her dog Sasha threw herself against the backyard door just before midnight Sunday and wouldn’t stop barking until Chai came outside. Sasha then darted inside while Chai discovered her house and the neighbor’s house — part of a fourplex on East Yorkshire Drive — were on fire.
