Red - A Canine hero of 9/11

While there were hundreds of human heroes in the days following the September 11 attacks, there were four legged heroes too. The dogs who searched for survivors and bodies in the rubble of buildings and planes. There were over 300 canine search and rescue teams who worked in the days and weeks following September 11, 2001.

Red, a 12 year-old labrador who searched the rubble of the Pentagon with her handler, is among those now retired as an active search dog. Her legs are not as spry as they once were but in her temperament Red still appears to have that same devotion to the search.

Not long after American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, Red was at work. She was only 18 months old, yet she discovered dozens of bodies.
