Real Name


First Appearance

Lad, a Dog (Novel, 1919)

Original Publisher

E. P. Dutton

Albert Payson Terhune


Lad was a rough collie who lived at "The Place" with his mate, Lady, and their human masters. The two of them later had a son named Wolf, and Lad raised him to be smart, brave and loyal.

Lad protected The Place and his masters from human criminals and dangerous animals. He also had a number of other adventures, and fights with other dogs. At the age of 13, he was still respected as the leader of the dogs at The Place.

Lad was a champion show dog, suggesting that he was very attractive and well trained. He demonstrated a high level of intelligence, courage and loyalty, though he was only an average fighter.
