Family Dog Sniffs Out Baby Abuser

In my crime prevention talks I tell people that a burglar alarm and a gun (if they are properly trained in firearm safety and proficiency) are good to have, but there is still nothing better for home and personal security than a dog.

Live 5 in Charleston, South Carolina offers a story that proves my point.:

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A couple says their dog sniffed out a baby abuser in their home, the woman who was supposed to be caring for their seven-month-old son.

The babysitter, 22-year-old Alexis Khan, pleaded guilty to assault and battery last Monday in Charleston County Circuit Court.

Benjamin and Hope Jordan hired Khan to babysit their son, Finn, last year after they moved to Charleston. They say Khan came up clean in a background check.

"We felt like Alexis was a good fit at the time," said Benjamin Jordan.

However their confidence in Khan didn't last too long.

"About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door," Jordan said. "He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her."

Thanks to their dog, Killian, the now-suspicious parents had a plan.

Hope suggested they place an iPhone under the couch and let the phone record what happens while they were at work.
