Angel (now Bailie)

Angel (now Bailie) Image

Hi everyone. My name used to be Angel but I didn't listen too well to it. The grandchildren of my new Mommy and Daddy decided to call me Bailie and I like it just fine. I even come when I am called. I have only had 1 accident in the house.  My foster mother said I will drool in the car and I did for about 1/2 hour. My new mommy just held me and talked to me and now I race her to the car and love riding on the dash of the motorhome with my new Daddy. I have a great big, big yard to run in.
We went camping at Big Valley Jamboree for a week and I had lots of friends to play with and I was a very good girl.  I really want to thank my foster Mommy for taking such good care of me until my new Mommy and Daddy could find me. I love them very much, and they sure love me.  Thank you NASAP!!


Lucy Image

It has been 7 months now since Lucy came into our lives and she has come so far. We took a series of Obedience classes as well as some off-leash group walks. Lucy is now very comfortable with other dogs. She now meets new dogs in the off-leash park with a natural ease and loves to play and chase.

At home, I can now have her off leash while I garden and work on our acreage and she no longer runs off to explore but instead stays right close and keeps and eye on me. We still walk 4 km in the woods behind the cabin every morning and then a shorter walk in the evenings. She is a very clever 'bush dog', barking at the skunks and porcupines while always keeping a safe distance. She also 'points' when she wants to show me things, for example, freezing and staring at a pheasant in a tree until I catch up and clue in to what she is trying to show me. She comes with me everywhere I go and is a great companion. A few weeks ago I was hurt while disassembling a barn in the back yard. As I laid on the ground waiting for my boyfriend to get ice (he is a doctor) Lucy never left my side and she stayed right by my side all that evening, even refusing to eat until I joined her in the kitchen.

Lucy truly knows that this is her home and she has become relaxed and sometimes even silly, doing things to make me laugh. I recently started a blog to share our lives with others. It's called and if you click on 'About Us' you'll see that Lucy has her own bio as well as a link to nasap.

Once again, thank you for making it possible for me to find Lucy. She is my closest friend and joy of my heart.

Nakiska Image

We adopted Nakiska in 2004 he is a bernese mountain dog crossed with a border collie.  He has been the joy of our life and has become a huge part of our family. Our Daughter taught him to sit stay roll over and wait for a treat soon after we got him and he hasnt stopped learning.  Now he is 9 years old and still acts like a puppy alot of the time.
What a wonderful DOG

Sunny and Zorro

Sunny and Zorro Image

Hi Mary

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with Sunny and Zorro.

They are both such a delight!

Sunny has settled in nicely and loves lots of attention. She loves to play with toys and go for walks.

Zorro is growing like a weed. He has completed a first level of puppy classes and learns quickly. He enjoys being outside and running around the yard.

They love to play together and they keep us entertained.

Attached is a picture taken on May 13, 2011 of the two. It’s hard to get them to both stay still together!

Also included is our proof of neutering of Zorro from our vet’s office.

Thank you so much for taking good care of Sunny and Zorro before they came to us, and for allowing us to adopt these two precious pets.

Amigo (previously Skittles)

Amigo (previously Skittles) Image

We renamed Skittles to Amigo and he has settled in our home wonderfully.
He has established himself a nice little routine in the morning, doing his area patro.  Then comes in the afternoon for a nap and snack and then does another perimeter check in the evening.  He has made many friends with our neighbours and our little sport hunter has depleted the mouse population around here.
We are extremely lucky to have Amigo and very grateful to NASAP for helping us find him.  The website description about him was spot on and we couldn't have better addition to the family.
Thank you NASAP,
Elise & Diane


Candy Image

I'd say Candy is very happy here!

At first she wasn't too thrilled with the fact that she was in a house with two big dogs, but now I'd go so far as to say that she might even like them!  I catch her doing the ole 'walk under the dogs belly and tickle them with my tail' move.

She is very affectionate with all the people here too!

Her health is good - good eater, good pooper, plays allots. 



Deacon Image

Hi Mary
           Deacon is doing fabulous he has fitted in to my home very well, he has one big brother Clive,also adopted from NASAP,who he plays with and an older brother Ralph who he follows around and likes to cuddle with.., and these guys have let him into the fold with ease.
          When I adopted Deacon his foster mom Laura had told me how frisky and fun he was and she has been totally correct, he is happy and not shy he greets me at the door every time I arrive home, and any one else who comes, and chats away to me with all the news, he still loves to tear up cardboard boxes, paper sacks and his favorite toys are little fluffy mice which he loves to hide around the house.He is healthy and still growing and to my delight he loves to cuddle and be brushed and even likes to have his teeth cleaned something his two brothers run away from!!!!! I never know what he will get up to next and enjoy him daily, I may need to buy a bigger bed as all three share it at night and my share seems to get smaller each night!!!. Now the weather is warmer Deacon likes to curl up on the window ledge and watch the birds on the deck at the feeders I have out for them.
         Once again I would like to thank NASAP for caring for all the animals and Laura was an awesome foster mom she made Deacon the sweetheart he is today,if I can help Nasap any way please let me know I have sent a volunteer application form but not heard back as yet,
                                   best wishes Paula Martin and Deacon

Heidi (previously Kitta)

Hi Karen, I have been meaning to email you for some time. Heidi is doing excellent.  She has been spay, healed and doing great.  My daughter Stephanie took her camping for the first time the long weekend. She gave the other 4 dogs that were there a run for their money, they were trying to hide from her because they didn’t want to play anymore. They were exhausted.  She and Napoleon ‘the pug’ slept for 2 days after from exhaustion. They had so much fun.  We don’t have to leash her she does not wonder at all and her recall is bang on. She is so smart.  We did however buy her an outdoor 10x10 kennel so we can not only keep her safe but we can lock it so no one can take her.  She loves it best when everyone is at home and she gets to snuggle with at least one of us while we watch TV.  She, Napoleon and Maggie (the cat) are the best of friends.  She’s a blessing. We’ll stay in touch.

p.s. I forgot to mention her love for water?can’t keep her out of it!
