It’s impossible for me not to have some sort of quick mention of this when People Magazine ran this short profile / story of Bretagne, one out of only two of the Ground Zero search dogs from 9/11 that are still alive. Yes, it was thirteen years ago. Bretagne is now 15 and for a dog that’s a nice ripe old age. Beautiful dog, beautiful story and worth reading. Thought we would share with all of our friends out there.
“In September 2001, Corliss and Bretagne (pronounced “Brittany”) traveled from their home in Texas to New York City – at their own expense and without pay – to assist responders desperately searching for survivors.
On the ground for her very first assignment, Bretagne’s mission was twofold: search for potential survivors and comfort the men and women on the scene.
Ultimately, Bretagne could only find human remains – although her ability to console workers was something to behold.”
A world of thanks to Bretagne and her owner Denise Corliss.
