A reader remembers a kennel along South Kerr Avenue. (File photo)

Francis Foy, a reader of Scott Nunn’s “Back Then” column and a lifelong resident of the area, said he remembers a private home where a woman bred and sold small, short-haired dogs in the 1950s on South Kerr Avenue near Hoggard Drive, where Wimbledon Chase apartments are today. The house sat far back off the road, he recalled.

Foy said a dog he had for a long time came from there.
