An old blue heeler named Max remained by the side of a three-year-old girl and led searchers to her after she spent more than 15 hours lost in rugged bushland on Queensland's Southern Downs overnight.

Aurora was reported missing about 3:00pm yesterday after she wandered off on her own, but a search of woodlands and hills on the rural property in wet weather last night found no trace of her.

This morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search and found the girl safe and well with Max the dog at 8:00am.

Kelly Benston, the partner of Leisa Marie Bennett, who is Aurora's grandmother, said Ms Bennett and other searchers heard the little girl faintly from the top of a mountain this morning.

"She found the dog first. Max led her to Aurora," Mr Benston said.

"Max is 17 years old, deaf and partially blind."
