Pit Bull Saves New York Woman from Burning Home

0


Jackie Bonasera said she was drying her hair in an upstairs bathroom of her Long Island home when Cain, her pit bull, began barking, which was uncharacteristic. She ran downstairs and saw the flames on the side of her garage.

She escaped the house only to realize Cain wasn't behind her. She thought, "He saved my life. I have to save his!" So she wrapped her robe around her face to go back and retrieve the dog. "I ran back in and I grabbed the dog and then I stood out here and I watched my house burn," Bonasera recounted.

Bonasera believes she would have been trapped upstairs if Cain hadn't been so persistent to alert her of the danger.

Bonasera's daughter, Alexus Stallworth, was outside the house when the fire broke out. She captured stunning footage of the blaze on her cell phone camera. Stallworth said Cain is "the town hero," and emphasized that he is a pit bull. "They have such bad reps, but he's such a good boy."

More than 70 firefighters were needed to stop the fire.

The homeowner is a contractor who is working on several homes that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy. He now hopes he can get his own home fixed before winter.
