Pit bulls get a bad rap. But a 10-year-old pit bull terrier named Baby showed that controversial breed can be heroes.
KOCO.com reports that Baby helped to save a family from a burning home in Wellston, Okla. The family was asleep when smoke and flames began to engulf their house. According to Rhonda Westenberger, Baby saved the day by waking Westenberger and her sister, Evelyn.

"There were flames shooting down the hallway," said Westenberger. "If Baby hadn't woken Evelyn up, I don't think either one of us would have come out of it."
Once the sisters were safe, the dog wasn't done yet. Realizing there were several dogs still in the house, Baby went back into the fire.

"There was [one dog] hiding underneath the bed," said Charles Land, another family member. "Baby actually went in there grabbed it by the neck and drug it outside."
The house was destroyed in the fire, but the family is grateful they escaped with their lives. Officials believe the fire began when the clothes dryer malfunctioned.

That's cool. Reminds me of Underdog, you know, if Underdog was a pitbull.

"Pitbull saves family, then proceeds to record single with them. Goes to the top of the charts."

When I read the title I assumed it meant that the pit bull went back to kill the other dog.

Me too! I'm glad I'm not the only one with an uncontrollable bloodlust.

Pitbulls weren't breeded to be aggressive, just the opposite. They're companion dogs that are amazingly loyal to people. The reason they were used for dog fighting isn't for their aggression but even hurt and in the middle of fighting a handler could pull off the dog without fear of being bit.

Dog fighters are horrible people that exploit the loyalty of amazing animals.

At least it gave Donovan McNabb something to do while he made millions of dollars playing a game.

I have a pit mix and so do many of my friends. They are awesome dogs. Sweet, loyal, protective.
