Max, a 17-year-old blue heeler is officially the most good boy doggo of them all when he remained by the side of a three-year-old little human after she had become lost on a rural property.
Aurora was reported missing yesterday afternoon after becoming separated from her grandpa in rural Queensland. More than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police, and members of the local community joined forces to find Aurora but after searching the surrounding hills, could not find her.
After what must have been a terrible night for the family, Aurora’s grandmother Leisa Bennet told the ABC she could just faintly hear Aurora’s voice from the top of the mountains the next morning. Not wasting a single second, Leisa headed in the direction of the sound and came face to face with Max the dog.
A doggo who’s deaf and partially blind.
Leisa told the ABC, “When I heard her yell ‘Grammy’ I knew it was her… I shot up the mountain … and when I got to the top, the dog came to me and led me straight to her… He never left her sight. She smelled of dog, she slept with the dog.”
I repeat, “she slept with the dog”. Max did a big protect.
Aurora was found mostly well at 8:00AM.
What did we do to deserve dogs?
According to the SES area controller Ian Phipps, Aurora was found around two kilometres from the family home. Since the surrounding area is so mountainous, Aurora must have become disorientated, especially at her young age. However, Max stayed by her side the entire time.
And despite the cold and wet weather, Aurora had only suffered a few minor cuts and abrasions.
The old boy has since become an honorary police dog and probably catches the ol’ crim by melting their hearts or doing a big bark.
With such a happy ending to such an experience, it was only natural Twitter celebrated the news.
An extremely good boy https://t.co/BTVD9eYhg7— Andrew Brown (@AndrewBrownAU) April 21, 2018
What a beautiful and brave dog. The fact that he stayed with a 3 year old for that long was just remarkable considering the dog's disabilities. Such a wonderful story.— Robin Byrd (@RobinByrd3) April 21, 2018
As if we didn't already know that dogs are the best people xx https://t.co/DgvRkcAIkW— Nicola Paris (@peacenicsta) April 21, 2018
We don’t deserve dogs. https://t.co/f7NX7GXJcX— blahblah (@danananah87) April 21, 2018
We really don’t.
Look at that face. That is the face of a good boy. Too pure.— WENDY (@AFLmusic) April 21, 2018
