"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.

A very elderly dog has been hailed as a hero after he stayed with a three-year-old girl all night while she was lost in the Australian bush.

The toddler went missing at 3pm yesterday, prompting a massive search and rescue effort that involved helicopters, police, SES volunteers from as far as Goondiwindi, Indigenous trackers and members of the community, who all pitched in to help locate the young girl.

Max is now 17 years old, deaf and going blind as he continues to age.

In addition to pushing boundaries in her real life, Wood explained that her " Westworld " character would also be breaking barriers in the show's new season.


The little girl, Aurora had wandered away from her family home at Cherry Gully in the south of Warwick on Friday in the afternoon.

"She found the dog first".

"The search was actually quite hard where the volunteers and the police were, amongst the very steep slopes full of lantana and other vegetation".

"I thought I heard her calling out and I shot up the mountain", she said.

"The area around the house is quite mountainous and is very inhospitable terrain to go walking in", emergency services coordinator Ian Phipps told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Moreover, Bennett also said that her granddaughter responded to her call and that is what made her sure that it was Aurora.

'He stayed with his three-year-old human last night whilst she was lost near Warwick.

Mr Phipps said Aurora suffered minor cuts and abrasions but was otherwise well and it was a wonderful outcome for the family and searchers.

"She's a very hardy young girl to survive that without any ill effects and everyone, all the volunteers are extremely happy".
