Laddie is a certified therapy dog through Pets and People Foundation. He is a 6-year-old sable, rough collie, who has been an active therapy dog since 2018. Laddie loves to listen to stories, whether it is children reading at a library or residents at a nursing home sharing their life stories. With his big warm furry coat, Laddie loves the colder weather, especially the fall and winter.

Register for your own 15-minute session with Laddie through the Event Calendar at concordlibrary.org. Bring along a favorite book.
