Talk about amazing!
Firefighters in Poland are hailing a small dog as a hero for saving the life a three-year-old girl who had been missing.
The child, named Julia, was found near her house covered by some dense marshes.
The dog was nestled by her, and is said to have kept the child warm during a bitterly cold night.
The child was admitted into the hospital for frostbite, but her condition would have been much worse had it not been for her trusty canine friend.
Here's what a firefighter said:
"For the whole night the animal was with the girl, it never left her. Remember, it was 5 degrees below zero and the child was wet."
Firefighters said the animal was the most important factor in the girl's survival.
After she disappeared, almost 200 people went out searching for Julia.
It was only after Julia survived the night and began crying in the morning for her mother that she was finally discovered.
All thanks to her very good dog!
