MOSCOW, March 3 (RIA Novosti) – A small dog saved the life of a three-year-old girl who went missing in Poland and spent the night in freezing cold temperatures, Vesti FM radio reported on Sunday.

The girl, Julia, disappeared with her pet dog from the village of Pierzwin in the Lubusz province in western Poland on Friday. She was found lying in nearby marshland on Saturday morning with the dog by her side.

Firefighters who found the girl said the dog kept the child warm enough throughout the night, with temperatures plunging to minus 5 degrees Celsius (23 Fahrenheit).

More than 250 firefighters, police officers, rescue workers and local residents searched for the child throughout the night. They also employed a police helicopter with infrared cameras and six search dogs looking for the girl.

Julia was taken to hospital in Zielona Gora where she is recovering. She appears to have suffered some frostbite but her health condition is not life-threatening, the hospital’s staff said.

    Most animals seem to have an instinct when it comes to this kind of thing involving children. I am happy the little girl was ok...
