A second chance at life for John’s 19 year old dog Schoep. 
A photograph of a man wading in Lake Superior with his 19-year-old arthritic dog captured the hearts of millions when it was posted online last month—an outpouring that inspired the dog’s owner to launch a foundation to help low-income families care for their aging canines.
John Unger says Schoep’s Legacy Foundation has raised more than $25,000 since Unger and his dog, Schoep, were photographed by a friend, who posted the image to Facebook.
Before the photo was taken, Unger and his veterinarian had been considering putting Schoep down. But through the unsolicited donations from people who saw the photo, Unger was able to treat Schoep and extend his life.
The “Official Fan Page of Schoep and John" has more than 20,000 "likes," and Hudson has been selling prints of the photo to benefit the cause.
