This is what Love is. John Unger adopted Schoep as a puppy. 19 years later, the elderly dog was suffering from arthritis and hip dysplasia.
Once that photo became viral, their story made the news. Donations started pouring in from around the world, which allowed Unger to pursue other methods of pain management that gave him another year with his beloved Schoep.
Even though Schoep is gone now, the love behind that photo can be felt around the world. Be sure to spread that love by sharing this video with your friends and family!
