In honor of 9/11, we are featuring Bretagne.
Bretagne, pronounced Brittany, is the last surviving search & rescue dog who worked at Ground Zero after 9/11. The September 11 disaster was Bretagne first deployment alongside her mom (handler), Denise Corliss. Bretagne was one of eight finalists for the 2014 American Humane Association’s annual Hero Dog Awards.
Bretagne recently turned 16 years old, and she had a pawsome NYC celebration provided by BarkBox. Bretagne was pampered with gifts, a luxury accommodation from 1 Hotel and was awarded the “Bone to the City” by Hudson River Parks. Watch BarkPost‘s pawtastic Bretagne’s Best Day Ever, 16th Birthday celebration video.
Thank you, Bretagne and to all working dogs.
