A three-year-old girl named Julia wandered away from her home in Poland on a dark, frigid night. For hours, more than 250 fire fighters, police officers, rescue workers and residents searched for the missing child. They also employed a police helicopter with infrared cameras and six search dogs to look for the girl after she wandered off into the forest near her village.
But the rescue services were not successful in finding her and the next morning, they still didn’t know where she was. The night had been so cold and everyone was worried that she would freeze to death before they could find her. But, miraculously, Julia made it through the night, all thanks to a dog who kept her warm. Fire fighters found Julia lying in a nearby marshland with the dog by her side.
Julia’s grandmother immediately recognized the black dog as Julia’s best friend, though it wasn’t her official pet. From what it seems, the dog was a stray that bonded with the little girl and the two became inseparable.
Julia was treated for frostbite and released from the hospital. Police authorities credit the hero dog for saving Julia’s life.
We’ve seen the great lengths our pets will go to make sure we’re safe and sound, and this story is no exception. I have a feeling these two will share a bond that lasts a lifetime.
