In Australia a few years ago a three year old girl wandered from her property into the bush.

This seventeen year old bluey, deaf and partly blind, followed her. He followed her into the bush and trotted after her and stayed with her all night.

The next day the dog recognised one of the searchers, who realised what the dog was doing and followed him to the girl. They said she smelled like the dog.

His name was Max and this was 2018. Too lazy to give a link but you can google! I have a dog of the same breed - they are very, very loyal and will sooner die before anything happens to your children. My childhood dog wouldn’t even let other kids hit me with a pillow.

Reminds me of my old blue heeler/aussie mix. My mom got heatstroke one day while working in the garden. After that, the dog would get between her and the plant beds any time Mom started having even a hint of trouble with the heat. She refused to move until Mom went inside to drink some water and cool down a bit. She was such a good dog.
