MUST READ: Dog Saves Baby From Monster Babysitter |The Republican News
Finn And Killian
Dog doing more of the caring than the babystitter
It’s a well-known fact that dogs have instincts about people. It’s a good thing this couple had a hero dog. Killian took actions that will make him known as a hero forever.
Hope and Benjamin Jordan moved to Charleston, South Carolina for work. They were in a new place with no idea who anyone was. But, they knew they were going to need help taking care of their son.
The kind Killian playing with Finn, the baby
It’s hard to trust just anyone with your child. Parents hear all kinds of horror stories in the news. Little did they know theirs was about to become one.
What do you do when you’re a parent in a new place. You can take references from people you’ve just met or you can go through agencies you hope follow up on their promises. But, it’s always hard to let go and finally choose someone you can trust with your own child.
Hope and Benjamin were very cautious about who they chose. They were very thorough. That’s why they were happy when 22-year-old Alexis Khan passed all the necessary background checks and had previous babysitter experience.

Hope and Benjamin were relieved to have found a good babysitter. Now, they could concentrate on work and their lives were finally back on track. But, something was about to change.
Killian was normally an even-tempered dog. But, he was changing. He was not very fond of Alexis. That should have been a tell-tale sign.
Hope and Benjamin didn’t think anything of it at first. But, the behavior got more radical. He just couldn’t stand Alexis and there were times when they physically had to pull Killian away from the babysitter.
There was a strong bond between Killian, the dog and the boy
It might have crossed their mind to put Killian in a cage throughout the day. Alexis might have liked that. That way the dog wouldn’t harass her all day while she was trying to take care of Finn.
Killian was a member of the family. What they needed to do was get to the bottom of this change in behavior. What was wrong with Killian? What was he going through?
It finally dawned on the couple what might be happening. Alexis must have been mistreating Killian. So, they decided to do some detective work because a babysitter just wasn’t going to be able to get away with mistreating a member of their family.
It’s bad enough if Alexis was mistreating Killian. But, what could they do? They had no evidence. They knew they needed to find out what was going on, but they had no idea how.
They finally figured out what they could do. They could put an iPhone under the couch. That way, they could record everything that was going on in the house while they weren’t around.

Alexis came to take care of Finn. The parents left to go to work. They had no idea what they were going to find. They weren’t looking forward to it either.
They came home that evening and Alexis left. That’s when they grabbed the iPhone from under the couch and had a listen. They were expecting to hear the dog being mistreated.
What they heard was far more distressing. Killian wasn’t the one who was in trouble. It was Finn who was being mistreated. They could actually hear Alexis beating their child.
The recording was very hard for the parents to hear, “Then you hear slap noises and his crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry. I just wanted to reach through the audio tape, go back in time and just grab him up.”
They handed the recording over to the police. The police definitely wanted to act, but they didn’t know if the recording was going to be enough. What they needed was something more than that!
Detectives know how to get information out of people, especially a babysitter who thinks beating on little kids is okay. During interrogation, the police leaned heavy and got exactly what they wanted. Alexis admitted to the abuse and that’s all they needed.
Alexis was sentenced to three years in prison. She was also placed on the child abuse registry. She will never be able to work with children again.
It’s the worst scenario a parent can imagine. But, Hope and Ben acted vigilantly. Finn doesn’t appear to have been devastated by the abuse and will be able to grow up happy without any issues. But, there’s more to this happy ending!
