9/11 canine hero to be cloned

By Nancy Isles Nation
The Marin Independent Journal

MILL VALLEY, Calif. — A Mill Valley company selected Trakr - the dog who found the last survivor at the World Trade Center in New York after the Sept. 11, 2001, attack - as the winner of its "Golden Clone Contest."

The German shepherd was selected from a large pool of submissions from around the world. BioArts International, which is also holding an auction for five dog cloning slots, sponsored the giveaway with the goal of identifying the world's most "clone-worthy" dog and replicating it at no cost to its owner.
