He saved his mistress who had fallen into the cliff, and Shiva received the fidelity award – Liguria

Kindness award to Cisternino, who saves the dogs of Kiev

Her name is Shiva and she is a beautiful 9-year-old border collie who, first inter pares, won the 61st edition of the Dog Loyalty award. the prize, awarded today in a very crowded ceremony, wanted to underline the great courage of the dog who reached her mistress immobilized and in a state of shock after falling into a cliff on Monte Corno, in the Bergamo area. Shiva watched the woman every moment and never stopped barking, thus managing to call her help and save her.
The story of Shiva is one of the many representative of the love that dogs can give: in fact, 10 dogs have been awarded at San Rocco for stories similar to that of Shiva, stories collected in Italy and in the world.
Together with Shiva, the Goodness award went to Andrea Cisterino, a fashion and costume photographer who has lived in Kiev for 11 years and who dedicates his life to animals, to report mistreatment, to give voice to the least, the strays. His ‘Italia KJ2’ shelter in Kiev welcomes dogs, cats and other animals, 400 in all, rescued over the course of 10 years. During the war, Andrea stayed with them, in the red zone of the Ukrainian capital. And it was a choice of love.
