Hi I’m Anikin!
Yes as in Anikin Skywalker from Star Wars! A big name for a little dog. I am approximately 8 yrs old and was sadly surrendered by my last family 6 mths ago. I have now been rescued into my forever home with the beautiful kind animal crazy Lairds!
Life is great now. I get to go to the West Beach parkrun nearby. My owner Kiana (13) knows everyone at parkrun so I walk the 5kms along the River track with all the other parkrun enthusiasts!

Life is good at parkrun and I like meeting the other doggie participants for a cold drink afterwards……
