A golden retriever who had been separated from his owner for three months couldn’t contain his excitement when they were reunited.
Loyal Hugo was taken to the airport to give his owner, Alexandra Owens, 29, a warm welcome home.
The personal trainer, who had been away in the UK visiting family for several months, flew back from Liverpool to Sydney.
After he was filmed being led into the airport with two ‘welcome home’ balloons attached to his harness, Hugo seemed to understand something was going on.
But the minute he clamped eyes on his beloved Alexandra he leapt into the air and bounded towards her.
An adorable video shows Hugo almost knocking over his owner as he jumped up to say hello after being separated for so long.
Getting down on her knees to greet the pup, Alexandra made a fuss of him as he licked her face while wagging his tail excitedly.
