Young Aurora was reported missing on Friday at 3 pm as she went wandering around Queensland's Southern Downs.

A blue heeler dog by the name of Max stayed with his owner Aurora when she went missing for 15 hours.

Max, a 17-year-old Blue Heeler, may be deaf, partially blind, and getting on in his years, but that didn't stop him from playing the role of loving companion and hero to a lost three-year-old girl in Queensland, Australia.

Max had apparently spent the rainy night with Aurora on top of a mountain.

"Her uncle was sitting on a stump, and he said, 'Oh, I'm trying to think like a 3-year-old, ' and he said, 'I think she's gone that way, '" Bennett said.

She was found on the property about two kilometres (more than a mile) from the family home. He stayed with his three-year-old human last night whilst she was lost near Warwick. Aurora's grandfather, Kelly Benston said that her partner Leisa Bennett and other rescuers heard the kid's voice faintly from the top of a mountain early Saturday morning.

The Facebook page of Queensland Police also shared the incident.

After her anxious grandmother Leisa Bennett raised the alarm, strangers and indigenous trackers came from as far away as Stanthorpe to search for the girl.

She informed ABC Information: "After I heard her yell "Grammy" I knew it was her".

"The dog came to my feet and I thought, 'Oh my god, I found the dog.' The dog led me straight to her", Ms Bennett told 7 News. "Max is 17 years old, deaf and partially blind".

He stated: "The world round the home is sort of mountainous and may be very inhospitable terrain to go strolling in, so she'd travelled fairly a distance together with her canine that was fairly loyal to her". Some 100 emergency volunteers were involved in the search for Aurora. She suffered only minor cuts.
