16-year-old super dog Bretagne (pronounced “Brittany”) has devoted her life to helping others. Widely recognized as the last-known living search and rescue dog that responded to the World Trade Center following the 9/11 attacks, Bretagne and her pet parent Denise Corliss have since deployed to numerous other disaster sites, including: Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Ivan.
Now in her retirement, Bretagne volunteers as a therapy dog and helps children to read aloud.
Bretagne is one of 10 dogs chosen by Milk-Bone brand dog treats after a nationwide search to uncover the four-legged heroes who have made an extraordinary impact on the lives of individuals they love and the communities that need them.
Bretagne’s talents include:
>> Formidable search and rescue skills
>> Serving as an ambassador to a local volunteer fire department
>> Helping children practice their reading
