A loyal family dog saved a young boy from a baby sitter's physical abuse. According to Life With Dogs, the dog alerted the boy's parents that the sitter wasn't to be trusted, leading to their discovery of the abuse.

Benjamin and Hope Jordan hired Alexis Khan, 22, to babysit their son, Finn. Khan's background check was clean, and the Jordans felt when they hired her that she was a good fit for the job.

But after a little while, the Jordans noticed their dog was behaving strangely around Khan.

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

Suspicious, the couple hid an iPhone in their couch to record what happened while Khan was in their home. Sure enough, they captured audio of Khan abusing Finn.

"It started with cussing. Then you hear slap noises and his crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry," Benjamin Jordan said.

Khan was arrested and plead guilty to assault and battery. She will go to prison and be placed on a child abuse registry. Meanwhile, Finn's parents say he is safe and showing no signs of trauma, all thanks to a loyal canine companion.
