when you think that Doyle spent most of his life in a scrapyard and hated other dogs as he'd never been allowed anywhere near them.
Of course, there's more to Anja's story than a happy go lucky girl these photographs show. Here is her Change Lives appeal.....
However, all in this story is not bad. We quickly put Anja on a renal diet as prescribed by the vets, and along with antibiotics for a Urinary Tract Infection, Anja's latest blood tests are showing that her phosphorus levels have reduced dramatically since she began on the special food, and she is gaining weight too. Its hard to believe at times that she is suffering from any disease at all.
So this is where we need your help..... Anja's prescription food cost just over £80 for a 14kg bag. Can you help us with our life long commitment to give Anja the only thing that can help her?
If so you can contribute by the following methods:
Send a cheque (payable to SHAK) to Wildwood Cottage, 3a Stead Lane, Bedlington NE22 5LT.
Make a donation via PayPal to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org (marking all donations the Anja Appeal)
Call Moorview Vets directly on 0191 256 6990 (please tell them it is for food for Anja at SHAK)
Hand in your donation to the SHAK stall at one of the events on the Events Page.
Or print off the Standing Order form below:
Of course, another way of helping is by offering Anja a Forever Foster home. It would be the very least she deserves if she was to spend her life with a family that loves her. If you are interested then please contact me via email email@example.com

Used and abused before coming to us, she was another Daddy's girl who would deliberately misbehave so I'd go and carry her home to her kennel. She helped so many dogs in her time with us, and shared kennels with George, Wilf and right to the end with Bobby. In fact in the 6 weeks or so she lived with him, Bobby was the happiest I've ever seen. Below are her playing with Jetta who was due to be destroyed for being dog aggressive.
We're all going to miss her, perhaps me more than most, and we'll all never forget her that's for sure. Nina had been badly abused, but allowed us into her life and with it came love and trust..... from both sides.
Sky, Brookes, Dusty and now Nina all in two weeks. I think my heart is beyond repair.
Here's how we will all remember an amazing dog, and an amazing friend."

So the last 24 hours in the life of dog rescue..... One Staffordshire Bull Terrier booked into be destroyed at the vets, one American Bulldogs booked into the vets to be destroyed and a stray Akita.....
Managed to get all 3 safe, now just need to work out where to put them. I think the term is spinning plates.....
