Last Surviving 9/11 Search Dog Bretagne Dies at 16
HOUSTON — The last known surviving Ground Zero search dog died at 16 on Monday, and human first responders gave her a tearful farewell. Bretagne, a golden retriever who had since retired but was still a regular companion for some Houston-area firefighters, was ailing physically. With those same firefighters saluting her as they lined the path up to the Fairfield Animal Hospital, her owner, Denise Corliss, walked her in to be euthanized.
