SALTY & ROSELLE (2002) Salty and Roselle were both Golden Labrador guide dogs that were awarded the medal for being loyal at the side of their blind owners. They courageously led them down over 70 flights of stairs in the World Trade Centre and then to a place of safety following the terrorist attack on 9/11.
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.
