[VIDEO] Firefighters bid farewell to last known 9/11 search dog
Firefighters bid farewell to last known 9/11 search dog. Bretagne, a 17-year-old Lab, 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.
In recent weeks, though, she (Bretagne) began experiencing kidney failure and slowing down. When Bretagne failed to do her favorite thing for three consecutive days — eat — her owner Denise Corliss realized it was time to say goodbye.
