The Last Living Rescue Dog From 9/11 Had a Sixteen Birthday

Advertisement

Bretagne is a golden retriever, but she is no ordinary dog – she is a true hero. After the great disaster of September 11th 2001, when  the World Trade Center was demolished in a terrorist attack, New York was needing help more then ever. What they needed the most was the help of specialised rescue teams to help save people trapped among the ruins. Some of those resuce team members were specially trained dogs. Bretagne happens to be the last living known rescue dog who helped people on this horrible day, and she just turned sixteen this year.
