From Library Journal:

Some of the most vivid and memorable scenes from the events and aftermath of 9/11 involve search-and-rescue teams painstakingly making their way through the rubble of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Dog Heroes pays tribute to the canine/human teams that did this selfless work. At the heart of award-winning writer Bauer's book are three chapters: "The World Trade Center," "The Pentagon," and "The Fresh Kills Landfill." Each of the 77 canine heroes featured appears on a two-page spread, with a narrative of its contributions and accompanying color photos. There are explanatory chapters on the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (NDSDF), FEMA certification, and the search and rescue canine. The book closes with information on the veterinary care these canine heroes have received and a health study addressing the short- and long-term effects of involvement in a recovery of this magnitude. This book will touch the soul; highly recommended for public libraries, regardless of their size.
