Bretagne (pronounced "Brittany") and all of the other hero search dogs of 9/11 put smiles on the faces of firefighters and search crews during an extremely difficult time.  Now, at 15 years young, she needs a little helping paw from us.

We voted. Many of the canine heroes of that time dies from respiratory problems or cancers from the toxins they encountered. Our PWD rescue dog was one of them. hey will be remembered always.
