Canine heroes at ground zero

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

After the September 11th disasters at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, scores of search and rescue dogs and their handlers rushed to New York City and Washing ton D.C. to lend their hearts, hands and noses to the recovery effort. Hundreds of highly skilled dogs worked long hours, often squeezing themselves into small spaces and crawling on their bellies in the search for survivors and victims. Among the hardworking canine heroes, were purebred Labrador Retrievers, Shepherds and Rottweilers as well as a number of mixed breeds dogs. The value of their efforts was beyond measure. Our canine friends deserve lots of love, exercise, treats, toys and pampering!
