By Cox Media Group National Content Desk

MARKINCH, Scotland —

A video of one woman's emotional reunion with her dog has been spreading across the Onternet.

Maria Macacioa returned to her parents' home in Markinch, Scotland, Sunday to be reunited with her dog, Sandy.

>> Read more trending stories reported that Macacioa went through a divorce safter a marriage she said was abusive, and left her ex-husband with whom she had been living in Oceanside, California.

"I decided to move back to America because I suppressed a lot of feelings and I had to face them," she said in a Facebook live video. "I was very lost and depressed."

While in the U.S., Macacioa works in Smithtown, New York, as a nanny.

Sandy, a 4-year-old golden retriever mix, searched and sniffed his owner's scent all over the house, finding Macacioa in a bedroom behind a bed.

He barked and howled in excitement as Maria cried happy tears.

Macacioa will go back to Smithtown, but said she would never take Sandy back to the U.S. because of the stress he had while traveling by plane.

"My parents have given him an amazing life and a beautiful home to live in," she said.
