    You probably remember the story of John Unger and Shep.

    Photo from Hannah Stonehouse Hudson.

    Unger and his dog Schoep became aninternet sensation three years ago after photographer Hannah Stonehouse Hudsontook a picture of them togetherin Lake Superior.

    Schoep loved the water but arthritis settled into his joints which made it hard to swim or even walk. So, Unger would just hold Schoep on his chest in the water, sometimes for hours.

    John was so devastated when Shep died about a year...

The reports involve more than 5800 dogs, 25 cats, three people, and include more than 1,000...

    Court records say he kept several dogs upstairs in the attic in cages with absolutely no light, no water, no food, and no warm bedding.

    The man allegedly got the animals from people giving them away for free on Craigslist.
