MURRYSVILLE, Pa. -

A nine-year-old Schnauzer is gaining national attention after a video of her fainting after being reunited with her owner after two years went viral.

In the video posted to YouTube late last week, Casey is seen joyfully barking at the site of her beloved owner Rebecca Sventina.

Sventina, who lives in Slovenia, was returning to her family’s home in Pennsylvania for the first time in two years, ABC News reported.

Casey’s gleeful barks, soon turned to squeaks before she began wobbling and then passing out.

“We never expected her to pass out, but luckily she’s fine,” Sventina told ABC affiliate WTAE.

Husband Miha Sventia added, “It's so genuine. It's so cute. There are so many things going on in the world. People are actually excited when they see something so nice and dogs are just awesome.”

Since being posted to YouTube last Thursday, the video of the Casey and Rebecca have been viewed nearly 20 million times.
