THE pooch who kept a missing three-year-old safe has officially become Queensland's first honorary police dog.

Warwick officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant James Deacon and the Darling Downs District Dog Squad officer-in-charge, Sergeant Trevour O'Neil, visited Max on Tuesday to bestow him with the honour.

Max received a Queensland Police Service collar and medallion.

Deaf, partially blind and 17-years-old, the blue heeler became a national hero after he stayed with three-year-old Aurora Kyle on a cold mountain top in Wildash last month.
