Our first Super Dog story is about Trakr, a brave German Shepherd dog.
"Trakr, the remarkable German Shepherd from Canada, trained as a police dog in Halifax where he uncovered more than $1m in stolen goods and located missing people but it was Trakr’s bravery on September 11, 2001, that forever etched his name in history.
When news of the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. reached Trakr's handler, James Symington, the Nova Scotia police officer was compelled to act. James and Trakr jumped into a van for the 14-hour cross-border journey to Ground Zero and joined first responders searching the rubble for survivors. They focused on a specific pile of debris from the north tower.
That’s where, in the early morning hours of September 12, Trakr made a momentous discovery. His keen senses led him to the scent of a survivor buried beneath the surface. Trakr’s tail went stiff and his excitement alerted other rescue workers who homed in on the area.
The last survivor was Genelle Guzman, a 30-year-old office worker who’d been on the 64th floor of the north tower when the first plane struck. Guzman made her way to the 13th floor before the tower collapsed, burying her alive. She awoke on September 12 in darkness, trapped between broken slabs of concrete. Thanks to Trakr's keen nose and the dedication of the rescue teams, Guzman was pulled from the rubble."
