Golden retriever Bretagne was euthanized Monday in Cypress.

The last surviving search and rescue dog from September 11 has died.

The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department says Bretagne (pronounced Britney) was a founding canine member of its search and rescue team in 2000.

She joined members of Texas Task Force One to search for people in the rubble of the World Trade Center, later responding to disasters like Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Even Governor Abbot thanked Bretagne for her service in a tweet.



Bretagne had an epic last birthday party in September.
