Heroic dog saves baby from abusive babysitter…Now watch what he did! A truly HERO!
Dog saves baby from babysitter (Video)
The parents of 7-month-old Finn Jordan suspected something was wrong when their dog began to growl and snarl at the babysitter, Alexis Khan, 22. “We noticed the dog was getting very defensive when Alexis was around. He would growl and stand between her and our son. His hair would stand up on the back of his neck and we knew something was up.” Benjamin Jordan said.
Khan had been working with for the family for five months before the Jordans became suspicious. They had run a background check on the woman, who had held previous babysitting jobs, before hiring her to watch the boy while they were at work, Jordan said. Killian, a black lab, was generally a docile and friendly dog and his behavior was out of the ordinary. Finn’s parents placed an iPhone under a living room couch to record audio of Khan, expecting to hear her possibly abusing the dog, according to court documents and officials.
A truly Hero!
Khan pleaded guilty to assault and battery and was sentenced to one to three years in prison. She will also never be allowed to work with children again. The Jordans credit their dog with saving the boy — and potentially other children — from further abuse. “Had our dog not alerted us to the trouble . . . it could have been Finn that was killed by the babysitter. You never know,” Benjamin said. Please, always listen to your instincts – and your pet! What they heard shocked them! The recording revealed the babysitter swearing and slapping the infant as the child’s cries changed “from a distress cry to a pain cry.” Watch the video and see what was recorded.
