Bear (an 11 year old Golden Retriever) and his dad, Captain Scott Shields, led the first search teams at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001. Bear was credited with finding the most victims and the only live finds by a dog at the WTC. He found FDNY Chief Peter Ganci and Fire Commissioner William Feehan. Each year, in September, Bear is honored at the ÂBear Search and Rescue Service Dog DayÂ held at the Intrepid Se-Air-Space Museum in NYC.
