Last Known Living 9/11 Search-And-Rescue Dog Returns To NYC To Be Honored
Meet Bretagne, the last known 9/11 search-and-rescue dog.
She was honored in NYC this past weekend for all that she has done and to celebrate her 16th birthday.
Bretagne the Golden Retriever and her handler Denise Corliss are a part of Texas Task Force 1, one of the FEMA search-and-rescue groups that responded on September 11th, 2001 to help find survivors and recover missing bodies.
“Towards the end of our mission, it changed from a search mission to a recovery mission,” Corliss told BarkPost. “I was just so grateful to have a canine partner that helped me get through it.”
That canine partner has become her best friend and they’ve shared an inseparable bond ever since.
Watch the video of Bretagne’s “Dog’s Best Day,” where BarkPost teamed up with 1 Hotels and various other companies to help give her the best weekend possible which was full of surprises.
Happy birthday Bretagne, and thank you for all of your hard work!!
