We’ve heard many stories about dogs that have acted in the most brave and selfless manner and have put their humans first. In this case, a 17-year-old blue heeler from Queensland, Australia wandered off with a 3-year-old girl and disappeared in a wooded area. As hours went by and the girl was still missing, police started to search for her, but it was already dark and their efforts were fruitless. The next morning, the girl’s grandmother, who was on the search team, heard her granddaughter’s voice. When she got to the top of the mountain, Max, the family’s dog, found her and led her to the little girl.
This is Max, the 17-year-old blue heeler that is deaf and half-blind
Isn’t he the cutest?
This is Aurora and the search team that spent hours searching for her
I can’t imagine how her family must have felt during this time.
The girl was finally driven to safety after her grandmother found her with the help of Max
Max had spent the entire time protecting and keeping Aurora warm
Let’s all applause this unsung hero!
Despite a couple of scratches, Aurora was in perfect health
This dog really protected her.
Max was declared a honorary police dog by the local police department
As he should be.
As expected, many people commented on Max’s heroic action
Honestly, I have no words.
This is Queensland’s Police Department’s announcement
Dogs are perfect examples of loyalty and they prove all the time that they are really man’s best friend. Not only that, but they are man’s protector.
