Neighbors Were Scared Of Pitbull In Apartment Building
Arjanit Mehana from Sweden lived in an apartment building with his 4-year-old pitbull named Simba. The two enjoyed a happy life together, however, when they’d go for walks some of the neighbors looked at Simba and were frightened due to his breed.

Simba Senses His Elderly Neighbor Is In Danger
One elderly woman in particular who lived a floor below them called Simba a “bad breed,” and every time he walked past her she would look at him mean. Arjanit said he could tell she was scared of him, however, that never bothered Simba, he always smiled and tried to show her love.
On their way back from a walk one day they passed this woman’s door and Simba stopped dead in his tracks, sniffed the door, and began barking. Arjanit tried to pull him away with the leash but Simba wouldn’t budge. Arjanit then leaned down to pick him up but that’s when he heard a faint noise coming from the door saying, “Help, please don’t go.”
Pitbull Saves Elderly Neighbor – Her Perception Of Him Shifts
Arjanit grabbed the door and felt that it was unlocked. He then opened the door and saw the elderly woman lying in the hallway floor with a broken hip doing her best to scream for help. She’d been there two days and was finally noticed. Any longer without help and it might not have ended well for this lady. From that moment on she absolutely adored Simba.
“She said, ‘Thank you for hearing me.’ I thought she was talking to me at first,” Arjanit said, according to the The DoDo. “But then she said, ‘No, not you — the nice doggie.’”
Because Simba sensed and saved her life she realized this “bad breed” dog wasn’t so bad after all. According to The DoDo, the elderly woman is currently recovering from her injuries but hasn’t stopped letting everyone know that it was Simba who saved her.
Simba Becomes A Hero & Praised For His Actions
Not only did it change this woman’s perception of Simba, but the entire apartment building he lived in started “showering him with treats and gifts.” Arjanit hopes this incident will make other people view pitbulls in a more positive light.
“I know Simba is a wonderful dog,” Arjanit said, according to The DoDo. “But I hope this event will make people see bully breeds differently. We, as human beings, must deserve their loyalty and love.”
