from the International Cat Association? Written by Scott Shields and Nancy West, this heartwarming book is a celebration of the human/canine bond. The author of this book was convicted of defrauding the 9/11 victims fund-the dog was never at the rescue site. A shameful act of profiting off of others' pain.

This is a most amazing story of the first rescue dog at Ground Zero. Bear and his owner went above and beyond to assist in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy. I simply loved the story.
Bear was an incredible dog. I am so grateful for his service and the opportunity to read about him.
Scott shields who has not a real Capt. was there as was his aged dog Bear. that's no in doubt. WE who have written in the negative have first hand knowledge and WERE there. Walking around the site for hours maybe days, meeting and greeting and making sure to have lots of photo ops. does not make one a hero. Poor Bear didn't have a choice. Scott took is UNCERTIFIED, UNTRAINED dog into one of the most dangerous places in history. Yes, bear made finds of DECESED PEOPLE or tripped over them and they WERE IN THE COMMAND STATION RIGHT WHERE THEY WERE TO BE. My untrained dog also would have found the smell of us alive or not under ruble. it was a smell that didn't belong there. There are live trained dogs, cadaver dogs and then you have the find the ball dogs which bear and his "son" Theo. are.
the book is a good read if you love warm and fuzzy and the facts don't matter, not does the Mr. shields making himself a hero. Like i said the poor bear didn't have a choice.
I tended to them both at forward triage and know what i speak of. Bear was an old k9 that was negligently brought there. Animal cruelty comes to mind as Mr. shields also brought his UNTRAINED and aggressive new k-9 Theo. to new Orleans for the photo ops.

UPDATE- Also be aware Scott Shields and his Sister Patty both have been convicted and sentanced to prision time in federal ft. dix facility for FEMA and RED Cross fraud. they are also barred from pertending to be a search and rescue person, fire staff and his org. has been ordered dissolved. OH, YA.... He actually has to get a JOB!!!! God Forbid!!!!
We all have a hodgepodge of visual and descriptive images of the events of 9/11 burned into our memories -- the airplanes hitting the towers, the fire and smoke, the bodies falling from the windows, the towers collapsing, the grimy, anguished rescuers. Among the most powerful of those images, for me, has been the search and rescue dogs who worked grueling days and nights alongside human workers, in the early, frantic search for survivors, and the long, grim search for the remains of the dead.
The first dog on the scene was a skilled, veteran golden retriever named Bear. By all accounts, he was an inspiration for the human rescuers and the other canine workers in those awful days. He, and the other dogs, were also a source of solace for human workers overcome by the stress and grief of what they were doing. One powerful picture shows a burly fireman kneeling, with his arms around one of these magnificent dogs, burying his face in the dog's grimy fur and sobbing. These dogs, no less than their human companions, were true heroes.
Bear, tragically, has since died of illnesses contracted at Ground Zero. But his human "dad," Scott Shields, Marine Safety Director of the NYC Urban Park Service, has written a beautiful tribute to his memory, with co-author Nancy West. "Bear: Heart of a Hero," traces Bear's life from carefree puppyhood, through search & rescue training and a lifetime of service at innumerable disaster sites, including Oklahoma City, to his magnificent service at the World Trade Center site and, as his health failed in his final year, to an amazing series of ceremonies and awards honoring his heroism. This little book is generously illustrated, and though it is conversational in tone, with no carefully crafted prose, it is riveting, and deeply moving.
Since Bear's death, a year after 9/11, Shields has devoted himself to raising the nation's awareness of the work done by these wonderful dogs and their volunteer handlers, and to raising funds to support their training, work, and veterinary care. Profits from this book go to those very worthy causes. I bought a dozen copies to give to my friends. You owe it to yourself to buy one and read it. It will make you cry, but it will warm your heart.
