Family Dog Alerts Parents To Baby Sitter Hurting Their Child


We all know that dog is mans best friend! There is NOTHING that we, as a species, could ever have done to deserve the wonderful gift that is dogs. 

This is especially true when our fluffy friends intervene, not just for cuddles and a game of catch, but to actually help out those who are most vulnerable. Well, that's exactly what Killian the dog did for little baby Finn.

Unfortunately, lovely Killian and baby Finn are on camera for some very sad reasons...

You see, Finn's parents Benjamin and Hope Jordan moved to Charleston in North Carolina. They were eager to find a sitter for their little one, who was just 7-months-old. 

They finally thought they'd found the perfect match for Finn after doing some extensive homework for good sitters in the area.

It was until about five months later that Hope and Benjamin became aware of something slightly odd. 

And who should make them aware of a problem in their own home than their most trusted companion, Killian. 

Killian began to behave very strangely whenever he was around the sitter. 

The Labrador was, by his nature, very affectionate, he loved cuddles and was generally a great big teddy bear! 

However, as soon as he was around Finn's baby sitter he would snarl, bristle and generally demonstrate an intense dislike of the woman. Killian even intervened by putting himself between the sitter and baby Finn. 

What an absolute hero this dog is.

Killian's behavior made Benjamin and Hope aware that something was not right. Benjamin said:

"For him to show aggression towards anyone is a sign to use that something’s wrong because he never shows aggression,” 

That's when Hope took action. 

She came up with the idea of leaving an iPhone beneath their couch, leaving it on 'record' mode. Though they were unable to see anything the noises that were recorded were enough to confirm their very worst suspicions.

Hope relates just what the iPhone recording captured;

“For nearly 7 hours my son cried nearly the entire time. She was cursing at him, calling him horrible names, and the thing about it, is that it came for no reason. He wasn’t acting up, he hadn’t been crying until she left him alone in his crib for hours, or of course, the physical abuse.”

In addition to this disgusting behavior the couple suspected the sitter also slapped and shook their poor baby, as noises on the recording alluded to such acts being done to little Finn.

This just makes me sick. These parents put their trust in this woman and she absolutely abused her power, hurting and bullying a tiny, defenseless child. 

She should be ashamed of herself, but I doubt she's the type to care!

Of course, Benjamin and Hope immediately contacted the relevant authorities. Fortunately, their distress has been helped by justice being served. 

The lady who was so horrible to Finn could now face between one and three years in prison.

Had it not been for Killian being a loyal and true friend to the family then I shudder to think how long this woman could have continued to hurt the baby she was supposed to care for.

It just goes to show! You should pay attention if you think your pet is trying to tell you something! 

It certainly helped Hope and Benjamin assure the safety of their precious baby!
