Commemorate the four-legged heroes who saved lives on Sept. 119/11/2012
Humans weren't the only first responders to the site of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Search dogs played an invaluable role in helping emergency crews locate and rescue survivors, and like their human counterparts, they often worked days on end without taking a break. Hundreds of dogs helped, but only a handful still survive, and photographer Charlotte Dumas set out to take portraits of them to commemorate their service more than a decade later. Dumas compiled the photos for a book titled "Retrieved," which came out last year and marked the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Check out our gallery of her shots to honor these four-legged heroes.
