Everyone knows that a hero can come in many forms, and rarely do they wear a cape. Some of the best of heroes aren’t even human at all, and instead of costumes they come covered in fur with an adorable dog face.
If you’ve ever owned a dog then you don’t need to be convinced about how amazing they are. You’ll never find a more loving or devoted companion. Not only man’s best friend; they have been proving for a long time now that they’re a friend to all.
Max is one dog that falls straight into this category.
A 17-year-old Blue Heeler mix, Max is already 2 years past his average life expectancy. The sweet senior dog also happens to be deaf and mostly blind, but he didn’t let that stop him from saving his tiny human, Aurora.
Aurora is a 3-year-old little girl living in rural Queensland, Australia. One evening, the toddler decided to go wandering off into the infamous Australian Bushland. What’s worse, she was wearing nothing more than a thin T-shirt and some lightweight pants for clothing. Within a short amount of time, Aurora was completely lost.
Fortunately for the little girl, her loyal dog had quietly followed her into the bush.
The moment that her family realized she was nowhere to be found, they organized a large search party. Every member of their community wanted to participate. From neighbors to the local police force, all came together to find the missing 3-year-old.
