Dog honored for keeping child safe
    2018-04-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A DEAF and partially blind dog that kept a lost 3-year-old girl safe in Australian bushland overnight was awarded police honors Saturday after leading rescuers to the child.

Emergency services began a search on foot and from the air for Aurora on Friday after the young girl wandered off into bushland on a rural property in Queensland state.

Seventeen-year-old blue heeler Max stayed with the child through a rainy night before leading family and rescuers to her Saturday morning after more than 15 hours in the wild.

“Leisa (the child’s grandmother) heard Aurora’s voice, found Max first, and then Max led her to Aurora,” Leisa’s partner Kelly Benston said, adding the dog was partially blind and deaf.

Police were quick to make the hero pooch one of their own.

“SUCH A GOOD BOY, MAX!,” Queensland Police posted on Facebook.

“For keeping her safe until she was found, you’re now an honorary police dog!,” police posted alongside a picture of family pet.

To the relief of her distraught family the 3-year-old was in good health, rescuers said, suffering just minor scratches.

She was found on the property about 2 kilometers from the family home.

“The area around the house is quite mountainous and is very inhospitable terrain to go walking in,” emergency services coordinator Ian Phipps said.
