The parents of a seven-month-old baby have said that their baby boy was saved from abduction by their family dog.
Jordyn Pamer and Zachary Phillips said that their infant son Zeke was taken by a creepy person who broke into their house - but the intruder didn't account for their loyal dog, Lola.
The couple said that they had just returned home to their house in Rittman, Ohio, when Jordyn went to have a shower and Zachary went off to have a nap because he works nights.
All the while, their son was fastened into his car seat - not in the car, obviously. They'd brought him inside the house.
Upon getting out of the shower, Jordyn saw that both the car seat and the baby had disappeared.
Speaking to a local TV channel, Cleveland19, she said: "It's like your worst nightmare coming true. He's gone."
The couple frantically searched for their son and after about 20 minutes they discovered that both Zeke and the car seat were outside in the garden, just next to the entrance to their basement.
They believe that was it not for the actions of their dog, the creep would have managed to escape with their son.
Pamer did say that she noticed that the dog was barking and growling while she was in the shower, but thought nothing of it.
Apparently that is relatively normal behaviour. Anyone who has a dog would probably agree on that front.
She continued: "I think whoever had my son opened the door to leave with him, I think my dog greeted them and they got scared and I think they left the baby and took off."
We don't know anything about the person that is thought to have tried to abduct the baby, but Pamer also told the police upon their arrival about a woman claiming to be from Wayne County Children's Services who had come to their door about a month before this incident.
The woman had spoken to Pamer - who held her son in her arms as they spoke - and told her that a complaint had been made against her and her husband.
They then checked with the authorities and an investigation revealed that no such complaint had been made.
Their neighbours also said that a woman had come to their doors with similar fictional complaints.
Pamer added: "I don't know if it was her directly but in my heart feel 100 percent that she definitely is connected."
