Bretagne, (pronounced, "Brittany"), believed to be the last surviving 9/11 Ground Zero search-and-rescue dog, was laid to rest after being euthanized on Monday.
The golden retriever, 16, was just two months shy of her 17th birthday, according to KHOU. Bretagne's dwindling health, which included kidney failure, aided the difficult decision to have her put to sleep.
She was laid to rest at the Fairfield Animal Hospital in Texas, as fire fighters and rescue workers emotionally came together to witness a hero's farewell. Her owner, Denise Corliss, walked her into the facility, her body respectively draped in an American flag.
Bretagne's hard work and dedication will forever be remembered.
