Mina & Balanka (Love Underdogs, Essex)

Balanka on the left and Mina on the right

12-year-old Mina is at Love Underdogs in Waltham Abbey, looking for a home with her lifelong friend 13-year-old Balanka. (One adoption donation only). Although originally from Romania, these beautiful girls have been with a family in the UK for 9 years, though it is thought they have lived outside.

Mina and Balanka are lovely gentle girls who have never had any home comforts, despite being in their older years. They have been together since being puppies and they deserve to find a happy home very soon – Love Underdogs would like to see them loved, cuddled and enjoying a comfortable life. They are a very easy pair and are no trouble at all.

Mina has some weight to lose and she is on a diet and exercise regime. She currently goes swimming once a week and has already lost a few pounds and is moving better.

You will need to continue with her diet and ensure she exercises a little. She is also taking thyroid medication. Balanka on the other hand loves a good run. She likes to run after a ball and can be very puppy like at times.

Balanka loves Mina to bits but can be a little choosy with other dogs. It’s nothing dramatic though, she just has a little mutter to herself when she disapproves.

Mina and Balanka are looking for a home with no children, as Love Underdogs like to place senior dogs in quieter environments. If you already have a dog, it will need to be a calm, older dog and will be introduced to Mina and Balanka at kennels as part of the adoption process.

Could you offer these wonderful older ladies the home comforts they have missed out on?
