Bretagne, the last known surviving canine hero who searched the rubble of ground zero after the 9/11 tragedy on September 11, 2001, has crossed the rainbow bridge. She was a 16 year old golden retriever.
When Denise Corliss, Bretagne’s (pronounced Brittany) owner and handler noticed earlier this week that Bretagne wasn’t eating, she knew something wasn’t right. Eating was her favorite thing. Sunday night she wouldn’t settle unless she was right by Denise’s side.
