9/11 canine hero to be cloned: California lab

I love dogs! Helping this heroic dog to live on is a wonderful gift. I hope the MkII version is as good as the original.

9/11 canine hero to be cloned: California lab: "A dog that sniffed out survivors from under the rubble of New York's World Trade Center after the 2001 terror strikes is to be cloned, the California-based firm conducting the procedure said.

Trakr, a German shepherd who lives with his owner James Symington in Los Angeles, was picked by BioArts International as the most 'clone-worthy' canine in a competition offering an owner a free chance to replicate their pet.

Symington said he and Trakr were among the first search and rescue teams to arrive at Ground Zero after the September 11 attacks, and were responsible for locating the last human survivor under about 30 feet (nine meters) of debris."
