1024x1024

Dogs are literally a blessing from God. And I find it that dogs are better than most people. These rescue dogs did so much on that horrific day. Not only did they save lives..they brought a lot of comfort to the distraught people of New York.

It blows my mind when you see how some people treat dogs. We don’t get to have a long life with these furry angels.God gave us these creatures for a reason. Take care of them!  God bless this furry hero for all she did for the American people.

Enjoy heaven.

A 16-year-old golden retriever believed to be the last surviving search-and-rescue dog that helped scan the wreckage of the World Trade Center for victims was euthanized Monday at a Houston-area veterinarian’s office.

The dog, named Bretagne, was retired and had slowed down considerably because of her age. But she was still a beloved fixture at the firehouse.

Bretagne, a 16-year-old golden retriever, and the last surviving search and rescue dog from 9/11, is walked, by her handler Denise Corliss, past a flank of members of the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department, as she was brought into the Fairfield Animal Hospital, Monday, June 6, 2016, in Cypress, to be euthanized.

The canine and her owner Denise Corliss, of Cypress, were deployed at Ground Zero by the Texas Task Force 1. After her retirement age 10, Bretagne aided other search dogs in training and volunteered at a reading program at a local elementary school.

About two-dozen firefighters and members of the search-and-rescue dog community lined the sidewalk to the veterinarian’s office to honor and bid a tearful goodbye to the ailing dog as she walked by them for the last time. An American flag was draped over Bretagne’s body as she was carried back out of the hospital. Read More
