Golden Retriever Excitedly Greets His Owner After Seven Months Apart

When we return to our homes after any length of time, even if it’s only a couple minutes, it’s safe to say that our dogs are consistently happy to see us.

There’s nothing like returning to them at the end of the day, or after several months, and seeing their happy faces and wagging tails. And our pups are truly extraordinary creatures: their unconditional love is capable of helping us through the toughest of situations and toughest of times.

Maria had just left her husband when she got Sandy, her golden retriever, near San Diego. The abusive relationship with her husband drove her to return home to her parents in Scotland, and she took Sandy with her.

But she felt that she had to return to the United States, because it shaped much of who she is. Unfortunately, this meant leaving Sandy in her parents’ care. Seven months went by before the two were able to see one another again… But imagine both the dog and his owner’s joy when they could. After all, they saved one another. Maria says, “I am forever in debt to Sandy because he gave me reason to get out of bed when I was in a really dark place.”

Now watch the moment they’re finally brought together after seven long months apart.
