For one dedicated dog mom, fleeing the California wildfires without her trusty Pit Bull was never an option.
As she drove home from an all-night study session around 2 am, college student Natasha Wallace saw the flames from the freeway and knew that her home would be right in their path. She knew that she had to evacuate – but not before getting her beloved dog, Bentley.
The two got in the car and headed on their way, but it wasn’t long before they got stuck in traffic. With the fires spreading, Wallace realized that they’d never get out of town in time, and formulated another plan: she’d evacuate on her bike.
The two headed back to the house, where the dog-mom grabbed her bicycle and a duffel bag, prompting Bentley to jump in. With the 70-pound Pittie in tow, she rode her bike a few miles until a fellow evacuee offered to take them the rest of the way to safety!

Said Wallace in the KTLX interview, “I would never part ways with my dog, ever.”
Thanks to her quick thinking, and the kindness of a stranger, she and her four-legged best friend are safe. Sadly, they lost all their belongings, but this dog-mom is forever grateful to the driver who helped save her and Bentley’s lives.
