A 9/11 Heroine Returns to Ground Zero


Story: Last Known Surviving Search and Rescue Pup Who Worked at Ground Zero Still Helps Others

Now a senior at age 15, we will #NeverForget the bravery of search dog Bretagne.

Dr. Cindy Otto, a veterinarian who cared for the search dogs after 9/11:

You’d see firefighters sitting there, unanimated, stone-faced, no emotion, and then they’d see a dog and break out into a smile. Those dogs brought the power of hope. They removed the gloom for just an instant — and that was huge because it was a pretty dismal place to be.”

She now wears her vest to help children learn to read.

Read Bretagne’s story and vote for her in the American Humane Association’s annual “Hero Dog Awards.”
