Meet Ben and May

Hello there we are Ben and May! We are almost 4 years old and have lived in Canada since we were nine months old. We did have what we thought would be our forever home but sadly our parents became ill and we came back into foster.

We love being in foster care but we are not sure what has happened with all these changes and we will admit it has been scary. We are adjusting well and are the most loving sweet babies. We get scared at first when we meet new people and will need someone that will understand and let us know that everything will be okay once again.

We are both shy and a bit skittish, but once comfortable, it is hard to keep us from smothering you with kisses and wiggly warm bodies. I hope you can understand we have been through a lot but we want a home where we can get back to where we were before and fill your life with love and fun. We do love our walks and will beside you. We also love a big backyard to run around and chase squirrels in.

Ben likes the outdoors and running about more than May. She likes to keep tabs on him and let him know when it is time for some peace and quiet. Outside Ben is the more vocal one and inside May is the voice. They will be quiet when told and they do love to sing when the pack does.

The kind of home this pair needs is one where the parents will be understanding of all the changes they have being through, giving them the space and time they need to settle. When they came back to care it took them only a few days to realize it was okay and make themselves at home. No more crate sleeping and into the bed to cuddle up, however we have taught them our pillows are for us and our heads are not pillows for them.

They are good little eaters, but May tends to growl the whole time she eats as she guards her bowl against imaginary food bandits. Ben likes his bowl close to May but far enough away to let May eat in peace.

Ben is the first one in bed and May will often wait until she is asked and if she is not she will talk away like a Magpie to let you know she is waiting. She is funny this way and has the most extensive dog speak vocabulary.

They are a loving sweet pair that needs a family to guide them and show them as much love as they will show you. When you look at their pictures you can see the love they have for each other and will happily share with you.
