Meet Max, a 17-year-old deaf and partially blind hero who saved a 3-year-old girl in Australia who had wandered off from her house and became lost. Thankfully, Max was with the girl when she left her home and he stayed with her all night long long and then helped rescuers find her in the morning:

From ABC Australia:
An old blue heeler named Max remained by the side of a three-year-old girl and led searchers to her after she spent more than 15 hours lost in rugged bushland on Queensland’s Southern Downs overnight.
Aurora was reported missing about 3:00pm on Friday after she wandered off on her own, but a search of woodlands and hills on the rural property in wet weather on Friday night found no trace of her.
On Saturday morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search and found the girl safe and well with Max the dog at 8:00am.
Max was even named an honorary police dog by the Queensland Police Department for keeping the little girl safe:
SUCH A GOOD BOY, MAX! He stayed with his 3-year-old human who was lost near Warwick last night while we frantically searched for her. For keeping her safe, you're now an honorary police dog. 🐶https://t.co/QiszGFP4gg via @ABCNews pic.twitter.com/xxRc6ndeaK

Dogs, for the win … again:
If aliens land and ask to be taken to our leader, we should bring them to this dog. https://t.co/7XLiufrygV
