A Touching Act of Love: Owner Takes Paralyzed Dog Swimming for a Blissful Slumber!


Many stories on the internet have shown how deeply people love pets. A sweet senior dog who was purchased when he was eight months old is now twenty years old. John Unger of Wisconsin, USA, took care of a stray dog by the name of Schoep. He was in his late 80s and didn’t seem to be getting any better. Owner Ungus was ready for the worst. John and Shop have lived together in the same house for the last 19 years. Unger just learned that his dog had severe arthritis, which had incapacitated him.

When the vet suggested killing the dog, John was horrified. However, he disagreed and chose to save Schoep. Throughout the beautiful dog’s last years, John gave the animal his whole attention, provided for his needs, and clung to him. John remained at his side the whole time. To relieve joint discomfort, Unger began swimming with the dog.

Swimming helps Schoep because it eliminates strain on his muscles and joints. The dog periodically slept off in the owner’s arms because of how calm it was. All of it is documented in a moving picture of John and his dog Schoep that John’s friend Hannah took.

When he entered the water, Unger said, “He didn’t swim every time; all he wanted to do was grab my shoulder and hug me with his foot.” “On one occasion, he even dozed off unexpectedly.” Unfortunately, Schoep is already dead. The dog was in a poor shape when John first met him. The dog, on the other hand, was always aware of its owner.

John promised to take care of him and treat him well, and he honored his promise. Even during these tough times, John insisted that he always go with him to his favorite activities and continued to take care of him. Please pray for Schoep in heaven and let us know what you think about this heartwarming friendship story.
