A missing 3-year-old girl who spent a night in freezing cold temperatures, survived because her dog kept her warm. The child named Julia was found 3 to 4 miles from her home with her dog by her side. Authorities believe the small dog named Czaruś kept the girl alive.

A small dog kept a young girl named Julia alive when she became lostThe missing child's parents called police on Friday after Julia, who was playing close to her home in Poland, disappeared with Czaruś.

More than 250 police officers, firefighters, rescue workers and residents searched the meadows, thickets and forest surrounding the family's home in the village of Pierzwin. They also had a police helicopter with infrared cameras and search dogs looking for the girl.

The search lasted throughout the night. Julia was found in nearby marshland early Saturday morning by a group of volunteer firefighters from Brzeźnica.

Julia was freezing cold and frightened, but conscious. Czaruś was by her side. Firefighter Grzegorz Szymanski said the dog kept Julia warm enough to live and was instrumental to her survival. "For the whole night the animal was with the girl, it never left her. Remember, it was 5 degrees below zero [Celcius] and the child was wet," he said.

Julia was taken to hospital in Zielona Gora where she is recovering. She appears to have suffered some frostbite but it is not known how serious at this time.
