Bretagne (pronounced Brit-nee), the last surviving Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Search & Rescue Canine from 9/11 was laid to rest on June 6, 2016. An invaluable partner to members of Texas Task Force 1, Bretagne was only 2 years old when she was deployed to the site of the World Trade Center in 2001. During her career, Bretagne responded to nearly a dozen other disasters, including Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ivan. Thank you Bretagne, and to all the other working dogs, for all that you did to help us.
