Dog Reunited With Doctor Owner Who Has Been Working On Front Lines

An excitable dog couldn’t hide his delight at finally being reunited with his doctor owner after almost three weeks apart due to COVID-19 precautions. In the adorable video, seven-year-old Maltese, Gino, can be seen barking with excitement, rolling on his side and receiving a much-wanted cuddle from owner Jeff Baron, 27. Jeff is a second-year surgical resident at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine where his hospital has received COVID-19 patients. Because of this, Jeff had been unable to return home to Gino and his fiancée Fabianna Pergolizzi until he was clear. When Jeff was finally given the all-clear, on March 28, he returned to Fabianna’s Philadelphia apartment, where he was greeted by Gino’s loving reaction.
