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. The partially blind and deaf dog took care of a three-year-old who had gone missing in Queensland bushland.

For his heroic role, Max has been named an honorary police dog-and will go down in history as a very good boy.

She first found Max, who led her to Aurora, who had only minor cuts and scratches.

EARLIER: A courageous and "adventurous" three-year-old was found "covered in burs" in dense scrub on a mountain-top, where she spent the night with her grandfather's dog. They wrote, "SUCH A GOOD BOY, MAX!"

"With the weather last night it's quite lucky she is well because it was cold, it was cold and raining", he said.

Kelly Benston, Leisa Bennett's partner, expressed their relief on social media, saying the little Aurora had been fearless during her ordeal.

According to ABC Brisbane, Aurora was first reported missing on Friday after apparently wandering away from her grandmother's house.

After a long and fruitless evening, police suspended the search of the property at 1am this morning.

"It was a great relief when I found her, thankfully that old dog stayed the whole night with her", Mr Miller said.

Ms Bennett said it was an emotional reunion with "a lot of tears".

"I shot up the mountain ... and when I got to the top, the dog came to me and led me straight to her".

Ambulance officers assessed Aurora before she was transported back to Warwick for a quiet day at home.

"I would really like to thank the traditional owners", Mrs Bennett said.
