The last surviving search and rescue dog from the 9/11 terror attacks has passed away.
Bretagne, a beautiful Golden Retriever, was one of 100 pups who helped to find and save people trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center in 2001.
She was only two-years-old when she and her handler, Denis Corliss, were tasked to the job.

Late last year, Bretagne was treated to a sweet 16th birthday party in appreciation for her work.
She was given the royal treatment – being transported to one of New York’s most luxurious hotels via limousine before being taken to Times Square where she was greeted by a billboard that read “Happy Birthday to Bretagne.”
She also had a cobblestone dedicated to her at the 9/11 memorial plaza.
The 16-year-old passed away on Monday, reportedly from liver failure – RIP Bretagne.
