American Kennel Club Honors A Special Breed of Hero

Today, we're remembering all the people who lost their lives and were affected by the events of September 11, 2001.

We're also honoring the heroic dogs of 9/11 and the dog lovers that stepped up to support them.

In the video below, American Kennel Club President and CEO Dennis Sprung recalls his emotional visit to Ground Zero after a call came from the rubble of the World Trade Center that working canines injured in the rescue effort needed medical help.
