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.
