Who's a Good Doggy? Who's a good Baby?

A 10-year-old pit bull terrier in Lincoln County, Oklahoma is being praised for her heroic actions. She saved two sisters from their burning home.

You'd never know "Baby" is an old dog. Her owners can barely keep up. And, apparently, "Baby's" mind is just as fast as her feet. Early Tuesday smoke and flames filled the family's Wellston home. Rhonda Westenberger and her sister were sound asleep, unaware of the danger until "Baby" sprang to action.

Baby, the pit bull, she went and nudged her and kept touching her. The dog would not stop barking and pouncing until the women woke up. And, when they did, they had just seconds to escape.

I hope that this hero of a pit gets some good treats. Two humans and five other dogs alive because of her.

2. Pit Bull haters gonna hate.

Good Dahggie!!!

There is a reason the American Bulldog was once the gold standard house pet. Back in those days, for behaviors similar to this, they were once called Nanny Dogs.

6. A friend's pit dragged him over a mile, unconscious, when he hit a tree on a mini bike in the woods.

My daughter had one, sweetest dog ever!

It's owners that suck, not these sweet puppies.
