    Dog alerts parents to abusive babysitter

    Dog's reaction to sitter made parents suspicious.
    When the Jordan family moved to Charleston, S.C., with their then 7-month-old son, Finn, they hired a 22-year-old babysitter whose background check had come up clean. And while they trusted Alexis Khan with the care of their baby for five months — their dog didn’t.
    “We started to notice that our dog was very defensive of our son when she would come in the door,” said Benjamin Jordan. “He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.”

    Why just slapped? I think something worse needs to be done.

    So she passed the background check but not the much more reliable dog test.

    Dogs are so much smarter than many people believe. They are capable of acts and rationale that require substantial intelligence, animal-wise. Plus they are flat-out awesome!

    The Rest of the Story:

    That made the parents suspicious, and they decided to put a phone under the couch to record what was happening in the house. The audio recording captured the sounds of the sitter cussing at and slapping the baby while he cried.

    Khan was taken into police custody and pleaded guilty to assault and battery. She’ll be placed on a child abuse registry so she won’t be allowed to work with kids again.
    Yet another reason I'd save my dog first.

    What a great story.
    Not just a good dog, that's a great dog.

    No one would ever slap an adult for a simple mistake. Why slap a child for the same thing?

    Dogs are funny. They do things for their own reasons, but sometimes their reasons are outside of human comprehension.
