It's been 14 years since the day the hijacked planes hit the twin towers. As the anniversary of 9/11 approached, people turned their thoughts to the lost - and to the heroes who helped save lives on that day.

Among the countless human heroes, sung and unsung, were the rescue dogs who helped scour the rubble for signs of life.
Turning to social media to post the powerful images of rescue dogs in action, people helped others all around the world remember.
