Saint is Nick’s sidekick. He is never more than 2 feet away from Nick. It’s his job. Saint was rescued by Operation Delta Dog and trained to help Nick with his Soldier’s Heart.
Saint was named after the Objective in Baghdad where Nick was operating during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. All initial objectives in Baghdad were named after NFL football teams. Saint was named in this manner in homage to one of Nick's favorite TV Characters, Captain, formerly Sergeant, Malcolm Reynolds of TV’s"Firefly" . Reynolds named his ship "Serenity" after his battle in Serenity Valley.
Saint is looking forward to having his likeness in a new children’s coloring book “Saint goes to Washington”, which teaches children about service dogs and while also learning to be better, more active citizens.
