SEOUL, Dec. 26 (Korea Bizwire)President Yoon Seok-yeol and first lady Kim Keon-hee on Saturday adopted one more guide dog that recently retired from the Samsung Guide Dog School in Yongin, south of Seoul.

The retired guide dog, named Saeromi, is a female labrador retriever born in Dec. 2013. She served as a guide dog for a visually impaired person since 2016.

In attendance at Saeromi’s adoption ceremony was Jin Min-kyeong, a “puppy walker” who cared for and trained Saeromi for one year when she was still a puppy, and Kim Han-sook, who was guided by Saeromi for six years.
