Stories of the Service Dogs of 9-11

10 Sep

So many different stories came up on the internet and other media about the dogs who served on 9-11, new books have been written, profiles of the dogs still alive who served, and the veterinarians who served the dogs that I’ve decided to just combine links to them into one big post. This will take a while to read through, and if you’re as quick to tears as I am, grab the tissues and take it slowly.

This Rin Tin Tin is a twelfth generation relative of the original puppy found on the battlefields of France during World War I.

In her new photo book, “Retrieved,” sharpshooter Charlotte Dumas has lovingly compiled portraits of 15 search-and-rescue dogs who worked at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

At goodnewsforpets, we are quietly remembering the search dogs that helped.  The New York City-based American Kennel Club honors this special breed of hero.  We reposted Steve Dale’s Inside Ground Zero column and our beloved New Yorker, the late Mordecai Siegal’s Paw Prints in the Dust.  In Canine’s Role in Search and Rescue, FEMA tells us how urban search and rescue dogs are now used.

Within hours of the collapse of the World Trade Center towers that morning, the NYPD called the AMC asking for veterinarians to come to Ground Zero and care for the dogs working there.
