Death of an American Hero - Roselle The 9/11 Guide Dog

Roselle - Thunder Dog

Roselle, known as "Thunder Dog", was a very special guide dog who survived the September 11th World Trade Center attacks with her blind owner, Michael Hingson.

Roselle and Michael were on the 78th floor of the North Tower when the first plane hit their building. In a remarkable display of trust and teamwork, the two climbed down 1,400 stairs, fled the towers, survived the ensuing collapse, and successfully navigated through the choking debris cloud.

Roselle passed away on Sunday June 26th, 2011 at the age of 13.

A book about her life has been released. Thunder Dog: A Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero


  1. I read this book and absolutely loved it. The devotion of this dog and the others dogs of 9/11 were unbelievable. They were tireless and knew what they had to do and did it without fault. They are all heroes.

  2. Wow, such an amazing story- and one I had never heard before. Just shows how amazing these dogs are. x

  3. All the dogs of 9/11 are all Hero's God Bless Them All
