꼬미야 입양을 축하해 ? 배속에 새끼 3마리를 임신한 채 안락사를 기다리던 꼬미를 유엄빠에서 구조하게 되었습니다 새끼들 모두 입양 가족을 만났지만 꼬미에게는 입양자가 나타나지 않았습니다. 그렇게 약 1년에 가까운 시간 동안 유기견 카페에서 임시보호를 받던 꼬미를 안타깝게 지켜본 @realisshoman @stefaniemichova 님께서 꼬미의 아빠 엄마가 되어주셨습니다. 소심한 성격으로 낯을 많이 가리던 꼬미를 위해 인내심을 갖고 기다려주셨고, 꼬미가 마음의 문을 열 수 있도록 노력해주셨습니다 꼬미도 그런 아빠 엄마의 노력을 알아봤는지 임시보호 초반과 다르게 지금은 배를 뒤집고 잠을 자고, 집에서 우다다 우다다 선보입니다 특히 엄마를 많이 따르고 좋아한다고 하네요 #유엄빠꼬미 를 예쁜 딸로 입양해주셔서 다시 한번 감사합니다 ? @ninapet_cafe 꼬미 임보자님에게도 감사합니다 ✅ . Kkomi congratulations on your adoption. Youumbba rescued Kkomi who was waiting for euthanasia with three puppies pregnant. All of her puppies have their forever families, but Kkomi doesn’t.
