When parents Hope and Benjamin Jordan hired a babysitter to take care of their newborn son, Finn, their family dog, Killian, immediately realized something was wrong.
The pooch would snarl and bark at the nanny every time she got close to Finn. He knew the babysitter had no place beside the new member of his family.
The family had recently moved to South Carolina and needed a babysitter to watch over their baby. But five months after the nanny was hired, they noticed changes in their dog’s behavior.
“He started getting real defensive at first, he would stand in between her and our son, and then gradually turned into more aggression towards her. That’s when Hope really started to notice something’s wrong,” Benjamin told Fox News.
He added: “He’s a very personable dog. He’s easy going, an eighty-pound lap dog, so for him to show aggression towards anyone is a sign to use that something’s wrong, because he never shows aggression.”
With their suspicions growing, the parents hid an iPhone for almost eight hours to record what was happening when they were not around.
When Hope played the recording, she said it was ‘a nightmare.’
“For seven and a half hours my son cried nearly the entire time. She was cursing at him, calling him horrible names, and the thing about it is 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.”
Hope and Benjamin also heard ‘slap noise’ over the audio, and sounds that supported the idea Finn was being shaken.
The baby sitter is now facing one to three years in prison, thanks to the signs the dog showed!
