MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) – Danny Miller is a professor at Eastern Kentucky University. Miller and Deborah Rockey raise golden retriever puppies in their spare time at their home in Richmond; which they say isn’t all it’s hopped up to be.
“There’s a lot of poop that goes on here,” Rockey said. “The washer and dryer never stop…never. So if this is our mission, it’s a unique one!”
Their unique calling led them to a unique girl in Idaho named Tru.
Tru is a six-year-old girl with cerebral palsy and is in need of a service dog…enter seven-week-old puppy “Indy.”
“He is going to be used as a support for her, picking things up whenever she drops it, providing comfort for her and just being her best friend,” Miller said.
