Rescue Dogs of 9-11
We know that many people put their lives at risk to go into the smoking pieces of debris at Ground Zero on 9-11. Many of these first responders died and later many others became ill. We also know that there were a number of rescue dogs that helped find remains. We honor these brave men and women as well as the canines who helped on that terrible day.
At the time this video was made, Abby was the last living Rescue Dog from the training center. There is, however , another dog, Bretagne is the longest living rescue dog from 9-11. In the pictures above are search dogs that have passed away. We owe them great honor and gratitude.
