Agostino was found abandoned in a farm where several animals had literally starved. On his arrival at Il Rifugio, Agostino was frightened and aggressive. All members of staff experienced his sudden attacks and it wasn't a pleasure, even if it was quite funny seeing how easily our fencing can be jumped by the staff! Now, with a lot of patience, Agostino is gradually improving. He sometimes becomes uneasy at feeding time and doesn't like to wear a head collar or to be groomed, but we have a long life to spend together, so there's no rush - we can wait for him to improve in his own time. In the meantime we have discovered how much he loves children.
