The 18-month-old girl was fished out of the dam at the farm property at Bowenvale, near the central Victorian town of Maryborough, about midday yesterday after the family's border collie raised the alarm.
The dog alerted the toddler's mother to the emergency by running back and forth between the house and the dam and barking, said an ambulance officer who arrived at the scene soon afterwards.
"I have been in the job for 20 years and this is one out of the box," said Greg Smith, the officer in charge of the Maryborough ambulance station, who attended to the emergency with his paramedic partner, Ian Taylor.
The girl was recovering in a stable condition at the Bendigo Hospital today.
