Hello my name is MINA and this is my story.


It's been many years since I was brought to the shelter. I started life on the streets where food was always scarce and when I got to the shelter food was so important to me that I fought for it really badly with all I had. This is not a good thing if you are in a kennel with many dogs who are all sharing a big food trough. So they needed to separate me and while I was kept like this the years went past... and I became a long termer who has waited for about 4 years now. Nobody ever wanted me. I was beautiful and strong, but because of my food aggression and sometimes dominance towards other dogs I was always passed by. Until recently when Paws2Freedom heard my plight and took mercy on me. They promised to find me a loving home. I am now in foster with Bojan, the Bark Ark shelter owner where I am sharing with other dogs. Over the years I have mellowed a lot and have realised that there is food enough for everyone and that I will not miss out. Well, my size speaks for itself as I made sure I always ate all that was available to me. My future family will have to work on my weight issue with me. 


If you would like to apply for giving me my forever home, please complete an application form as a first step. But please bear in mind that I am advertized on other sites too and I hope that you understand that there may be more than one application to my name by the time you have completed yours for me. 

Please enjoy my photos and videos below. They show me when I was rescued and still very young and after my long years separated in the shelter, being given a wash and now in foster with Bojan's family. 

If you would like to support me a bit I would be ever so grateful. Your donation will help so much and every penny counts. This is a big rescue mission for such a small charity and we can't do it without you. If you could mark your kind giving with ‘Bosnian Dogs’ your funds will be put towards my costs or that of another dog like me. 

Thank you so much from my happy heart and collie paws ~ Love, Mina ♥
