Pit Bull Rescues Owner from Fire

A New York woman narrowly escaped a house fire this weekend, and she says all the credit goes to her pit bull, Cain.

On Friday, Long Island resident Jackie Bonasera was drying her hair in an upstairs bathroom when she was alerted to trouble by Cain’s frantic barking.

Bonasera went downstairs and discovered her house was on fire. The flames had spread from the front to the back of the home, and had begun engulfing the garage.

Panicked, she ran outside — without Cain, who was still trapped in the house.

“I ran out of the house and my neighbors came running over, and then I thought about the dog — I’m like, ‘He saved my life, I have to save his,'” says Bonasera. “So I just put my robe over my face and I ran back in and I grabbed the dog and then I stood out here and I watched my house burn.”

Bonasera is certain she would have been trapped upstairs in the burning home if not for Cain’s warnings. And not only is the dog her personal hero, but Bonasera’s daughter, Alexus Stallworth, says Cain is now “the town hero.”

“He’s a pit bull, too. They have such bad reps, but he’s such a good boy,” said Stallworth, who captured a video of the blaze on her phone.

Bonasera is probably correct that she would not have survived the incident without Cain’s help. The fire was so intense, 70 firefighters were required to put it out.

In this case, dog really is woman’s best friend.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
