Schoep is on his way to recovery…and it's all thanks to the viral photos spread across the internet!
John Unger's arthritic dog is recovering after tons of sympathy poured into his dog. Unger would take his ailing pooch into Lake Superior to ease his pain.
Now, thanks to donations after his viral photos set the Internet ablaze, Schoep is feeling like his younger self!
The gifts received from compassionate reader helped pay for expensive laser treatments for the dog.
Unger tells how his pup is improving with the following:
Schoep is doing great! Since receiving treatment he is more active, alert, flexible, happy.
He walks better, sleeps through the night now and wags his tail with more vigor. On our last walk he was even trotting!
I feel such overwhelming gratitude - Schoep wouldn't be here today, if it weren't for all these people who offered support.
People from all around the world are opening their hearts to us. It is nothing but amazing.
Unger goes on to say that his pooch saved him for suicide and he'll be forever grateful.
To repay the kindness of his donors, he has set up the Schoep's Legacy Foundation, dedicated to improving animal and human welfare.
We're so happy to see Schoep living life to fullest again!
