LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 9.18 67 Homeward Bound Writer Eric Burnette traces his rescue dog's journey from shelter to home. Photos by Mickie Winters Where do puppies come from? Southwest of Louisville, past the steaming towers of LG&E's Mill Creek power plant, past the 19-foot-long fiberglass bass at Pepper Tackle, through the woods of Fort Knox and into rolling hills and corn- fields, which almost look like they could be in Pennsylvania Amish country. Breckinridge County, population 20,000. Beyond the old storefronts in Hardinsburg (pop. 2,200) and the jail lies the Breckinridge County Animal Shelter. If you have a rescue dog and live in Louisville or Cincinnati (or even Kensington Palace, but we'll get to that), there's a good chance it came from a place just like this. e shelter is a low white building, with a tin roof over the front door, like the porch of an old country store, only there's no porch and no store. An old gray GMC Safari that's decked out in pet decals sits parked out front. A round man with a Duck Dynasty beard and a hunting-camo ball cap exits the building and removes a pack of Marlboro Golds from his shirt pocket. is is Randy Miller, one of the shelter's two full-time employees.
