Haven, a Australian Shepherd/Sheltie mix was found with another Australian Shepherd in Abilene, Texas at a truck stop. She and the other dog were brought to the local shelter. A person that lives in the area found the dogs and posted them on the Aussie-L. Seeing the dogs, we drove to Abilene which was about 5 hours from our home, picked up both dogs 2 hours before they would have killed. Haven came to live with us and the other dog was taken by another foster home. Haven was full of matted fur and filthy. We chose the name 'Haven' because we gave her a 'haven' from death and/or a life of wandering.
