Last Known Surviving Search Dog From 9/11 Celebrates 16th Birthday [VIDEO]
Bretagne is the last known surviving search-and-rescue dog to work Ground Zero (her name’s actually spelled Bretagne, but it’s pronounced Britney.). Her handler, Denise Corliss from Texas, says 9/11 was their first assignment together.
They flew the two of them to New York, stocked their hotel room with dog treats, had room service bring Bretagne a gourmet burger, put a billboard of them in Times Square, and threw a party where Bretagne got dog toys and a cake.
To top it off, the 9/11 Museum dedicated a cobblestone to them, and the hotel donated $1,000 to Texas Task Force 1, where Bretagne was trained. Hundreds of dogs, of course, were involved in search-and-rescue after 9/11.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Bretagne!!!!
