Caroline Pespisa plays with her German shepherd, Maxx, at home. Pespisa scans local shelters for German shepherds and other breeds, and helps channel them to local rescues out of the city pounds. She is not just dedicated to dogs. On weekends, she helps catch feral cats and has them neutered and then re-releases them. She is an all-around animal lover. Browde contacted her about Sid, and then she came to see him. She said she knew she had to do quite the sell job to persuade the rescue to take him, but she convinced them that the old guy needed a home.
