Her name was Bretagne. A golden retriever who was the last surviving search dog among those working in the 2001 New York attacks. Constantly smiling, kind, bright life-savior.
Bretagne also worked as a search engine during hurricanes Katrina, Rita in 2005 and other devastating disasters in the United States, along with her constant partner, Denis Corliss.
In 2016, Bretagne gone peacefully of old age, a little short of her 17th birthday. It was a big blow for Denis, who taught her herself and worked with her for over 10 years.
After it Bretagnes’s friends and simply grateful residents of Texas decided to erect a monument to the dog in the suburbs of Houston, near the site where the dog served.
