Nothing can make us happier than learning more about Schoep and his improving health status!
As a quick recap, owner John Unger took his arthritic dog to swim in Lake Superior to ease his pain.
The photo of the two went viral and Unger thanked his pooch for helping him through his own misfortunes.
Now, Schoep is feeling better and is on the mend, enjoying the winter snow!
While it is too cold to swim in the Great Lakes now, Schoep is said to be getting frisky as he plays in the snow.
Spokesperson Julie McGavrie says the following on the 20 year old pooch:
Schoep has always loved winter and snow and, he is doing great. Now that it’s cooler, he is frisky. He is responding phenomenally to his treatment
John is spending all his time taking care of his dog and he doesn't leave him, he is very attentive.
He's doing really well and seems to be loving the snow, but he doesn't travel around town anymore because the roads aren't very good in the winter.
Such great news! We hope Schoep keeps improving and enjoys his winter wonderland!
