Hero JunctionRemember – Appreciate – Be Inspired


Known for his knack to locate people, evidence, and stolen property, Canadian police dog Trakr (along with his handler, James Symington) traveled 15 hours from Nova Scotia to Ground Zero and participated in the search and rescue mission.

After finding the last survivor buried beneath rubble, he collapsed from chemical/smoke inhalation, burns, and exhaustion. He was treated and released.

Trakr later died in April 2009 at the age of 16 from a neurological disease that some experts attribute to smoke exposure during his work at the World Trade Center site.
