Dog helps girl, 3, survive cold night

The story of a three-year-old girl gone missing in the frigid cold in Poland had a happy ending thanks to a dog.

Young Julia wandered into a wood near her village in south-western Poland.

She made it through the night only thanks to the dog who kept her warm -- and alerted rescue workers as to where to find her.

Her grandmother said the dog was the girl's best friend.

"She was with this dog all the time. She didn't go anywhere without it. When she was with me, when I was looking after her, she constantly said, 'Granny, the dog needs to come in the house. And she told me to cut bread and she fed it all the time."

Julia is now is being treated for light symptoms of frostbite.
