Finn And Killian
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.
Finn Kisses Killian
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.
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.
Finn Growing Up
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.
Alexis Started Immediately
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 Stressed
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.
Killian Was Trying
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.
Dad And His Dog
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 that just wouldn’t do.
Mom And Finn
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.
Placement Of An iPhone
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.
Mom, Killian And Finn
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.
Hope And Ben With Killian
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.
That’s Not What They Found
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.
They Heard Everything
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. During interrogation, the police leaned heavy and got what they wanted. Alexis admitted to the abuse and that’s all they needed.
The Happy Family
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.
Killian, The Hero Dog
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 all because of the actions of Killian, the hero dog who because of this heroic act is now in training as a psychiatric service dog.
