Met a breeder/boarder by happenstance
I posted on my local Freecycle group, that I wanted to give away a nearly-full bag of Orijen Puppy food which Maccabee did not tolerate well. I decided who I was going to give it too, and agreed to leave it on my front porch. Well, I forgot to put it out, so the woman rang my doorbell. Turns out she breeds Australian Shepherds (she shows them, does all the testing (she mentioned it without me asking), etc.). I let her come inside to meet Maccabee and she was very good with him. When I picked him up to bring him towards her, she said to leave him and let him come to her, not to scare him. During our conversation, she mentioned that she boards dogs in her home. Maccabee usually travels with us, but I saved her contact info in case I ever need someone to watch him.
Don't worry: I'm not switching to Aussies! I love my Hav and if I get another dog it will be another Hav (another Starborn Hav).
Good deeds DO payoff. I gave away a perfectly good bag of food I couldn't use and met a nice dog person.
