GLORY HOUNDS encores Tuesday, September 10, from 9-11 PM (ET/PT)

Animal Planet premieres HERO DOGS OF 9/11, a one-hour documentary that pays special tribute to three survivors of the 9/11 attacks and to over 300 search-and-rescue dogs and workers throughout the continent that traveled to Ground Zero to help during the crisis and aftermath. These specially trained dogs searched for survivors trapped in rubble, guided people to safety and comforted those in need on that fateful autumn day. The special also reveals the never-before-seen story of how the courageous dogs found the last remaining survivor who was pulled from the rubble 27 hours after the World Trade towers collapsed.

Immediately following HERO DOGS OF 9/11, Animal Planet continues to commemorate canine heroes with a special re-airing of the two-hour documentary, GLORY HOUNDS, featuring highly trained military working dogs that use their keen senses of smell to track insurgents and signal for explosive devices in Afghanistan.

Animal Planet acknowledges and honors service of men and women, along with the dogs, whose heroic deeds, sacrifice and compassion must not go unnoticed.
