Last Surviving 9/11 Rescue Dog Honored With Huge 16th Birthday Party [VIDEO]
This is Bretagne (pronounced Britney), a Golden Retriever and the last known surviving rescue dog who worked Ground Zero after 9/11.
Bretagne and her handler Denise Corliss are members of Texas Task Force 1, and 9/11 was their first assignment together. Denise says Bretagne didn't just help with the search-and-rescue mission, but also helped her get through it.
They flew the two of them to New York, stocked their hotel room with dog treats, had room service bring Britney a gourmet burger, put a billboard of them in Times Square, and threw a party where Bretagne got dog toys and a cake.
And to top it off, the 9/11 Museum dedicated a cobblestone to them, and the hotel donated $1,000 to Texas Task Force 1, where Bretagne was trained.
Over 100 dogs were involved in search-and-rescue after 9/11. The only other one alive is a 15-year-old English Springer Spaniel named Morgan. She did human remains detection on Staten Island, where they took all the World Trade Center wreckage.
