Laddie was adopted from CAWL located in Prince Frederick, Maryland. A week before finding Lad, my daughter Leah and I visited another shelter to look at a collie – but, we were late and the dog was already spoken for. My daughter cried on the way home. I said, “Leah that was not the dog our Lord picked out for us to have. Our dog, is a big boy named Lad and he will know us and we’ll know him as soon as we lay eyes on each other.” One week later, Lad was in Petfinders.com and only few miles down the road. There was no waiting period – he was delivered the same day by the shelter. Now we are the proud owners of two adopted collies (Lassie and Lad).
