A dog is being hailed a hero after he alerted the Jordans to a babysitter who was abusing their 7 month old son.
22-year-old Alexis Khan was hired by the Jordans to take care of their baby Finn. Unfortunately, after a few months, they noticed that their dog started acting differently towards the babysitter.
“About five months into her being our babysitter,” Finn’s dad Benjamin Jordan recalled, “We started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door. He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.”
The parents became suspicious and decided to hide their iPhone on the couch to record what happened when Khan was alone with Finn. They discovered that Khan not only verbally abused the baby, but also slapped him until he cried in pain.
The parents quickly reported Khan to the authorities. She was charged with assault and battery, and will face one to three years in jail.
Luckily for the family, their dog saved Finn from any further and future 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 added.
