Last 9/11 Search dog is celebrating 16th birthday in New York

BarkPost[/caption]Bretagne was there 14 years ago helping to search for survivors after the attack on our Twin Towers. From NBC New York:

The last known surviving search dog that helped workers sift through the wreckage of ground zero following the Sept. 11 terror attacks just celebrated its 16th birthday in the Big Apple.

Bretagne, a female golden retriever, is likely the last of 300 or so dogs that worked at ground zero in the days and months following the attacks 14 years ago. Last month, to celebrate her 16th birthday, dog treat company Bark & Co. flew her and handler and fellow 9/11 responder Denise Corliss up from Cypress, Texas, to Manhattan for a tour of the city, according to TODAY.com.


"There are so many reasons Bretagne's story is special, but this one really hit home for BarkPost since we are based in New York," said Laura Hartle, creative producer for BarkPost Video, which coordinated the celebration. "To be able to have the chance to thank one of the dogs who helped our city when we needed it most was an unforgettable experience."
