Gjina is our FDF dog. Gjina lived on the streets in Bosnia for several years so she had to look for her own food. Thats why she likes to grab stuff out of the garbage can. She now lives with us at the FDF and has a lot of friends. Sometimes she will come to you and ask for a pat on the head or a cookie.
