Remembering the Hero Dogs of 9/11

When the World Trade Center collapsed on September 11, 2001, nearly 10,000 emergency rescue workers joined in the efforts to help. More than 300 of those heroes were dogs. Today we remember and honor the Hero Dogs of 9/11 along with the countless people who had their lives irrevocably changed by man's best friend. From search and rescue dogs to comfort dogs to bomb detection dogs, these canines' acts of courage, healing and long-lasting legacy must never be forgotten. 

Always remember.

Poor dog was probably so scared. Kudos to that kind stranger for helping him.

via ABC News: "Jaxson began to persistently bark in what his owner describes as an 'irregular tone and cadence,' the city said. "Because of this, Jaxson's owner rushed downstairs to figure out what was causing his dog to bark. That's when owner, Todd Lavoie, noticed sparks from an outlet and its sole power strip. The pug stopped a house fire from escalating and likely saved the lives in his home" Way to go, pup!
