#유엄빠양이 화성 시보호소에서 구조된 양이는 당시 홍역에 감염되어 죽음의 문턱에 있었던 아이입니다. 구조 후 유엄빠 이모 삼촌들의 도움으로 빠른 입원치료를 받을 수 있었고, 퇴원 후 허약해진 건강상태에서 임보자님의 도움으로 지속적인 통원치료를 받을 수 있었습니다. 그로 인해 홍역에서 완치 판정을 받은 양이. 하지만 안타깝게도 후유증으로 틱 증상이 남았습니다. 그렇지만 치사율 높은 홍역 바이러스를 이겨낸 양이가 정말 대견하고 기특합니다. 그동안 양이의 옆에서 보호자 역할을 도맡아주신 임보자님께서 이제는 양이의 진짜 가족이 되어주기로 약속하셨습니다. (양이에게 진짜 아빠가 생겼습니다!) 양이를 위해 많은 공부를 하고 지식을 쌓고 계시며 양이가 조금이라도 불편하거나, 두려움을 느끼지 않도록 최선을 다해 예쁜 딸로 키워주시기로 약속한 견주님 정말 감사합니다 @sunghoon1983 첫 만남도 그랬고 임보기간 동안 전달해주시는 양이에 관한 이야기를 나누다 보면 강아지의 대한 습성을 너무 잘 알고 계셔서 직업이 훈련사인줄 알았습니다. Yangi was rescued from Hwasung City Shelter. She was close to dying because she was infected to measles at that time. After rescue, Yangi was hospitalized to receive treatment. Even after she came out of the hospital, she was able to continue receiving treatment from the help of her foster. Yangi recovered fully from measles, but unfortunately, she has tic disorder due to the aftereffect of measles. However, I am still proud of Yangi for overcoming the disease which has a high fatility rate. And today I would like to share good news with all of you guys. Yangi’s foster made the decision to welcome Yangi as a forever family. We would like to thank Yangi’s new owner for always studying and trying his best to be the best daddy in the world. Thank you very much and congratulations, Yangi!
According to Yooumbba, Yangi was suffering from the measles, which has a high mortality rate.
Thanks to the organization, Yangi was luckily able to receive treatment rapidly and be saved.
