-- Dog Was Kind to Anyone Except the Babysitter –The Reason Behind Was Shocking

Most dog owners treat their furry friends as part of the family. Aside from teaching them fun tricks, dog lovers typically dream of being able to understand their language. From their facial reactions, ears and tongue movement, bark and more, humans take time to determine what their furry best friends are trying to say.
Benjamin and Hope Jordan was the couple from South Carolina who experienced firsthand that the so-called “canine” language has the power to change their lives forever. When they noticed that their dog treated their babysitter in such a strange way, they decided to take action. What they’ve found out after had brought them a combination of horror and relief.

A Perfect Family

A little neighborhood in Charleston, South Carolina had witnessed how Benjamin and Hope Jordan built their dreams together. After a year of marriage, Hope gave birth to a bouncing baby boy, and they named him Finn.

Aside from their baby boy, the couple had another one in the house that they considered as family. It was the black Labrador retriever and German Shepherd mix named Killian. To the eyes of many, the Jordans were the epitome of a happy and perfect family.

Mutual Adoration

While most parents would feel quite reluctant to have a huge dog guarding over a few-months-old baby, Benjamin and Jordan thought otherwise. They had Killian first before Finn was born and the dog was adequately trained. Moreover, the couple made it sure the dog had the necessary vaccines.
Although Finn was not yet able to talk, it was clear that their baby boy adored the dog. He would frequently smile whenever Killian was around. Whenever he’s asleep, Killian would lie beside his crib and wait patiently until he’s up again. The couple didn’t need a translator to know that their dog had the same feelings for Finn. They were like best friends.

The Need for Change

In 2012, Benjamin got a better job offer in Charleston. Although Hope had her own job as well, they knew that they had to take advantage of work opportunities that can help them save better for their future. So, they mutually decided to pack and move to another place, leaving behind their good relatives and neighbors.
In their new home, they had to start from scratch when it comes to gaining new friends in the neighborhood. Unlike before when they would just call a trusted friend to look over Finn when they were away, they had to hire someone who can take care of their baby. So, Benjamin and Hope began to look for a babysitter.

Doing their Research

Fortunately for the Jordan couple, there were lots of agencies in Charleston wherein they can get the perfect candidate. A little research on the Internet and they had narrowed down the list of possible babysitters for Finn.
Among the women in the list, Hope got interested in a twenty-two-year-old applicant named Alexis Khan. Although she was young, she had listed a lot of experience when it comes to taking care of babies. However, before they contacted Khan, they did some detective assignments.

Precautionary Measures

Benjamin and Hope were not oblivious to cases of child abuse often filed against babysitters. However, they both had to go to work, and they really needed one to take care of Finn as well as to look after the house. To ensure their baby boy will be in good hands, Benjamin ran a background check.
After thorough checking, the background check gave excellent results. Alexis Khan was clean, and her experiences seemed to be all legit. So, Hope made the call. Within a few days, the babysitter moved into their house.

A Nice Start

Since the new parents were still on the process of adjusting to their setup, they started leaving Finn with Alexis on a periodic manner. The couple was impressed with her skills, and they quickly trusted that she was knowledgeable in babysitting. Aside from Finn, Alexis watched over the family dog as well.
However, what went on as an excellent start was instantly marred when the couple noticed weird changes in their dog’s behavior towards the babysitter.

Things Didn’t Add Up

Alexis Khan had been living with the Jordans for five months when Benjamin felt that something strange was going on. Killian was naturally sweet and protective to Finn, however, whenever the babysitter was close to the baby, the dog would suddenly get tensed and angry.
At first, the couple thought that the dog was just feeling over-protective. But when a time came that Benjamin needed to tie him up so that Alexis would be able to go near the baby, it became apparent that the dog was up to something.

Frightening Reactions

In the years that Killian had been with Benjamin and Hope, the couple confidently claimed that he was a good boy. He was a calm and loving dog, and he was nice to everyone who approached their house. Although he used to bark when there were strangers outside, it was still different when the babysitter was around.
According to Hope, Killian’s mannerism whenever he saw Alexis was frightening. He looked as if he was always ready to attack the poor woman. He was kind to everyone but the babysitter.

Hidden Message

For weeks, Benjamin and Hope decided to observe why Killian was particularly aggressive towards Alexis. Aside from his strange behaviors, it seemed to the couple that nothing was wrong in the house. Of course, Finn wasn’t able to tell them what’s happening whenever they’re away.

When it became too hard to restrain their dog from wanting to attack Alexis, Benjamin and Hope felt quite confident that their dog was trying to deliver them a warning --sort of “I don’t like this lady.”

Getting Suspicious

The Jordans were happy with the way Alexis was taking care of Finn. Of course, she’s also a human who can make mistakes. One time, Finn had a toothache. Instead of giving him non-medicated tablets, Alexis gave him adult medication. Fortunately, nothing wrong happened to their baby.

Things like that were forgivable for Benjamin and Hope. However, more than their eyes can see, they were feeling suspicious of what’s going on. They knew Killian was trying to send them a message. His attitude towards Alexis seemed to worsen with each passing day. So, they’ve decided it’s time to scrape for some clues.

A Genius Trap

Finally, on September 12, 2012, Benjamin and Hope made the first step to find out what’s really going on in their house whenever they’re away. Although they were growing suspicious, they just couldn’t fire away a babysitter. Moreover, she seemed too good at her job.

The genius trap was suggested by the couple’s friends. They were mostly away, so they needed to leave an ear. Before they left the house that day, an instrument that would bring them the truth was tactically put in place.

Taking Advantage of Technology

Benjamin and Hope decided to open up a memo-recording app on her phone. They selected the part of the house where Alexis and Finn mostly stayed. It was in the living room.
Then, Benjamin put the device just under the couch and made it sure that it was completely hidden from view. For almost eight hours that they were away, the device had recorded everything that happened inside the house.

The Shocking Audio Tape

When the couple went home that day, they intentionally sent out Alexis for an errand. That gave them the chance to retrieve the device from under the couch. When Benjamin clicked on the playback button, they were shocked at the sounds that went off.

It seemed that they had only been away for a few minutes when the babysitter had shown her real identity. There were lots of swearing and what’s more terrifying was the sound of their baby’s cry. It wasn’t normal.

Feeling Furious

Although Benjamin and Hope were not able to see what happened, the sounds recorded were enough to know that they had employed an abusive babysitter. Aside from the cussing, there were sounds of slaps followed by baby Finn’s cry of distress.

Gripping hard on the device, Hope was extremely sorry that their little one had to undergo molestation whenever they’re away. Benjamin was gritting his teeth. At that moment, he wanted to grab the babysitter and hurt her.

Horrific Imaginations

Although Hope found it too hard to bear what was recorded, she mustered her courage to listen to it to the end. There was even a point when she could hear that Alexis was actually shaking her baby, perhaps to calm him down. However, it only added to the baby’s distress.
Finn’s cry of anguish seemed to stab the couple’s heart. They thought of how helpless he had been. They felt that if Finn could only talk, they’d be able to hear more of the horrific incidents. Fortunately, it was not too late for the couple to set things straight.

Taking Actions

Alexis Was Arrested

Benjamin and Hope Jordan filed a case against Alexis Khan. After the necessary proceedings, the abusive babysitter was arrested by Charleston City Police. Since they had the evidence, Alexis realized there was no way she could deny what she had done.
When she confessed to what she did, the case came to a close in just a short time. She was sentenced to serve a minimum of one year and a maximum of three years in prison. Moreover, she had been barred by the child abuse registry from ever working with children again. It was only then that the Jordans felt real victory. At least, she can no longer hurt other helpless babies again.

Again, he was proof that even animals know how to live right, with compassion and kindness towards one another. Benjamin and Hope were extremely thankful that their son had a best friend and a bodyguard he could count on.
After some time, it became clear that Finn didn’t suffer apparent long-term effects. Benjamin told the media that they were all moving on and that they were hoping that what happened to their child would bring a valuable lesson to all the parents and babysitters out there.
