Marana resident John Cieslinski has multiple sclerosis, and it makes his life difficult.
Fortunately, he’s got a partner. Pepper, a Rottwieler-German Shepherd mix, has a good disposition, brains and the ability to help John around the house, helping to pluck items from the clothes dryer, and even helping John get up when he needs help.
John and Pepper completed a 12-week course through Top Dog, a Tucson non-profit.
