Labrador retrievers are loving animals who work hard to help their human companions. In this narrative treat for dog lovers, readers will meet Pearl, a black Lab who was trained as a disaster service dog. When a catastrophic earthquake occurred in Haiti in January 2010, Pearl and her handler went to the island country to help search for survivors trapped beneath rubble. Like other Labs, Pearl was focused, energetic, and easy to train, traits that may have come from the breeds ancestors, who got their start helping Canadian fishermen in the 1700s. Today, the loyalty and playful nature of the Labrador retriever has made it the most popular dog breed in the United States. Labrador Retriever: Most Popular is a perfect read for dog lovers that includes amazing, real-life stories about these huge dogs while also recounting the breeds history and how that determined the animals physical characteristics, personality, and suitability as a pet.

Omar Rivera, an office worker who is blind, and his guide dog, Salty, were on the 71st story of the World Trade Center's North Tower on the morning of September 11, 2001 when terrorists hijacked two planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers. Omar's coworkers raced to the stairway to escape the burning building. With chaos all around, Omar told his dog to guide him down the stairs. Would Salty be able to lead his owner to safety? In this book, young readers will meet the brave dogs that helped people during and after the deadly terrorist attack. From guide dogs that calmly led their owners to safety, to the 300 search-and-rescue dogs that used their powerful sense of smell to try to find survivors in the rubble, these incredible animals were part of the largest canine rescue operation in U.S. history. With true stories and full-color photographs of dogs working at Ground Zero, this book is sure to appeal to dog-lovers everywhere. Ground Zero Dogs is part of Bearport's Dog Heroes series.
