Elderly Dog Stuck By Three-Year-Old’s Side Overnight When She Got Lost In The Australian Bush

We've all met good dogs, but Max, a 17-year-old blue heeler from Australia, might be the most good dog. When his three-year-old companion wandered off into the Australian bush during a walk with her grandparent in Queensland, Max stayed by her side and kept her safe until morning, when he was finally able to lead searchers to her.

And he accomplished all this despite being partially blind and deaf!

We should also recognize the humans who helped find the young girl.

Understandably, however, most of Twitter's kudos went to the elderly pup:

Max really is an example of man's best friend.

Max's young friend will surely remember the scary 16 hours he kept her safe, though, for a dog as good as Max, it was probably just a "walk in the park."
