Rhonda Westenberger and her sister were sound asleep when the fire broke out in their home. Baby did what she had to do, bark. The pit bull kept on nudging the girls, barking and pouncing until the women woke up.
The women ran out but their other five dogs were stuck inside. So, once again, “Baby” came to the rescue.
“And then there was one hiding under the bed, wouldn’t come out,” aid family member Charles Land. “Baby actually went under there, grabbed it by the neck and dragged him outside.”
The family’s home of 17 years and everything in it is gone, but the family says their hope is not lost.
“She’s always come across to us as one of the family and this just proves it.”
As long as they have their family, their Baby, by their side.
“I’m so proud of her,” said Rhonda. “She is my hero. She’s the hero for all of us.”
