Caesar Image

Ceasar is doing great. He has adapted quickly to being an indoor/outdoor dog and is very people oreinted and good at the dog park. We are still working on come-when-called, as he gets distracted when there are fun things to do but he 'sits' very well now and 'shakes-a-paw'. We took him camping a couple times this summer and it went really well, though he nearly blew his mind over all the ground squirrels. He's a lot of fun and we're glad to have him!

Hutch Image

 Hutch is such a good boy - I am constantly amazed at what a quick learner he is and what a sweet disposition he has with the kids.  He's definitely playful in the mornings and starting to get comfortable enough to follow us upstairs (which we don't mind at all) or to vacuum up the crumbs surrounding Tommy's highchair (which was one of the benefits I was looking forward to!).  He enjoys going for walks around our neighborhood and has met other dogs just fine.  We have a busy house and lots of company and he just rolls with it.  Everyone loves him!

Annie (now Roberta)

Annie (now Roberta) Image

A lot has happened since I got the kitty. I was in an accident and she has proved to be a part of my therapy and I'm very grateful to have her. She passed her medical well. She had a little bit of acne and her paws were a bit red. Now no acne and her paw skin is good. She is socializing, likes the one "nanny" better than the other! She is outgoing, loving and stubborn. Very clean and has had a minimun of required instruction. Working on plucking of furniture. She is smart, trusting, is getting over scares such as brooms, boots, glasses, newspapers and strangers. She fits in very well. Although she was originally Annie, she is now Roberta or "Bert". Here are a few pictures of her life now. Regards, 


Isis (now Shyla)

Isis (now Shyla) Image

Isis' name has been changed to Shyla to reflect her shy and timid nature.  Although she still is quiet, the skiddishness and fearful behaviour she originally expressed has been replaced with wanting to play with everyone and everything (from gophers to great danes, and everything in between).  In fact, she is very much hurt when other dogs express a dislike for her.  Luckily, there are very few of these as it's difficult to not like a puppy as playful and happy as she is. 


It's not all rainbows and roses however, as she is a digger and filling in "snout holes" throughout the yard is very much a daily activity at our house.  Chewing on extension cords, wires, and garden hoses also seems to be a habit, and she has on more than one occasion left a trail of mangled stuffed animals secretively taken from the spare bedroom.


Our neighbours continuously comment not only on how good she is, but also how quiet she is, as she has does not ever bark, instead she just watches curiously at everything that goes on in the neighborhood.  Talking, however, she does plenty of that.  When excited, there is a continous flow of mumbling and muttering coming out of her mouth, and upon returning home from work each day she tends to narrate quite a tale of the day's events.


All in all, she is a great dog, and a wonderful addition to our family.  I've attached a few photos to brighten up your day.

Lilly Image

Lily is doing fantastic.  She has settled in and Brin and Lily have become very attached to each other, they might not have been born sisters, but they are that now. She continues to grow daily and is approx 75lbs right now. She eats like a horse and we have expectations that she will eventually grow into her feet, but at the moment, Brin is still a bit head of her (they are a month apart in age).  I have enclosed a couple of pictures of Brin and Lily for you to enjoy, one picture is from one of our walks, the second is coming home after a long day at doggy daycare (they go once a week to play with other puppys).
Thanks again for letting us bring Lily into our home and feel free to email me anytime


Jack Image

Hello to everyone at NASAP, we have received the letter asking how Jack is doing. Jack is a fantastic dog and we love him so much. His heath is great, he gained some weight and the vet said he's in a great shape. He loves to play with his two' sisters' (Nibblet- little shitsu and Minky- little black & white cat). He was adopted very quickly by the other animals. He loves to run, he's very smart and we have continue the training what the foster family started. He loves to lay on the deck when there's sun, we think that he was abused by locking him in a dark place, because the moment he sees sun, he wants to be outside in the garden. He loves giving 'kisses' and the whole family loves his temperament, he's good with other dogs at the 'off leash' park, and is good with kids, although when the child is too small he is little scared, but gets used to them quickly. He was abused and when we got him he was scared of men and was cowering down, now he's doing very well with other men and we think he has learned that not every human is going to hurt him, so he has the confidence that he lacked before. He's fantastic dog and is spoiled with treats in our home and the extended family homes too. We would like to send our gratitude for allowing us to adopt Jack and I am sure he's sending 'kisses' to all his friends at NASAP. I have attached pictures of Jack at my birthday party on July 10th/2010. Again thank you! ilona & kevin + kids & the other animals in our home!!!!

Cocoa (now Ella)

Cocoa (now Ella) Image

Hi there, we adopted Ella, (formerly cocoa)
She's doing wonderful, her vet check showed some damage to her larynx. Probably to do with the same reason she lost all the fur around her neck . The vet thought maybe a collar that was too tight or perhaps she had been tied up?? Anyways other than having to give  her an anti-inflammatory if she ever gets a respiratory illness, and having to use a very small tube if she ever needed anesthetic , it does not affect her. Other than giving her a very cute little meow.
She is adjusting well to our home. She follows me everywhere and curls up on my lap every night. Occasionally we will wake up to all of her toys hauled into our bed and she is parked about an inch away from our face watching us sleep ...waiting for us to wake up and play! She plays with our 3 kids for sometimes hours at a time. She has also become best friends with our 10 yr.old cat T-bone, she especially loves when he gives her a little face wash! And she is slowly thinking about liking our golden retriever Duke. She is perfect for our family and has helped heal the heart-break of having to put down our 11 yr.old Main Coon.
I have attached some pictures, I found her curled up in our bathtub enjoying the sunshine, so I took a few pictures, and of course she had to pose for me! I've also attached one of her hanging out with T-Bone. Thank-you for your organization, you take in animals who in Ella's case, maybe didn't have the best home to begin with...and you offered her a second chance, we are grateful!
Ps. Her hair is starting to come back in thick and beautiful!

Shanty Image

We adopted Shanty May 25th, but it feels like she's been a part of our family for much longer.  She fits in so well with us.  We took her on our first family camping trip, where she was unleashed for the most part and did SO well!!  She is great with the kids and calms down very well for a young dog.  She's had her vet check (did well!) and has her spay booked for this Friday.  Shanty likes to nap a lot.  She is learning "sit" "stay" and "off".  We love her and are so happy that we waited till the time was right to adopt and got the dog that is right for our family.

Thank You NASAP for rescuing Shanty!
