John Unger and his dog Schoep became an internet sensation three years ago after photographer Hannah Stonehouse Hudson captured this sweet moment of John lulling his arthritic dog to sleep on Lake Superior.

Well, a year and a half after Shoep’s passing John, started searching again. And ninety miles away in Hayward someone else was searching too.

A few days ago several dogs were surrendered to the Northwoods Humane Society. Among them was one-year-old Bear, a 70 lb. Akita/Shep/Lab mix.

“It was just unison. It was just you know, in love from the moment they said hello to each other,” said Kim Molitor, who works for the shelter

Starting over is never easy, but Unger learned years ago from his first love that it’s a chance worth taking.
