AMERICAN DOG HERO of the year 2011 This yellow Labrador guide dog, Roselle, was with Michael Hingson, her blind companion, on the 78th floor of the World Trade Center North Tower on September 11, 2001. Roselle was able to lead Michael down the flights of stairs. Once on the ground, Roselle was able to lead not only Michael to safety but many of his sighted coworkers who were blinded by the dust cloud.

Canine Heroes. 9-11-2001 <3 I heard this dogs suffered all sorts of stress problems because they could never find anyone. Handlers took turns hiding in rubble to be located because the dogs were freaked out. So sad. My class raised $$ for search dog shoes among other things.

The first search and rescue dog on the scene of the World Trade Center disaster on September 11. 2001, was Bear, an 11 year old Golden Retriever. He began recovery efforts immediately, working 18 hour days in the beginning. Rest in Peace, Bear.
World Trade Center - North Tower Hit. THIS is what true evil looks like. Shame on those who try and justify the actions of these "extremists" who took so many free, American lives on behalf of their "religion". I don't care who you are or what you believe in, this is murder. NEVER FORGET SEPTEMBER 11th, 2001. THREE HUNDRED AND FORTY THREE BROTHERS OF THE FIRE SERVICE GAVE THEIR LIVES THAT DAY.
