Jai dee • Sweet-natured
Unless there’s treats around, you’ll find this sleepy-head catching up on her beauty sleep under a tree…
May and her sister, June, were found on the side of a busy junction close to the Farm, nervous, skinny and riddled with parasites. Only a few months old, the two siblings were discovered by a local, traumatised by the loss of their mother and the other puppies of their litter, who had been hit by oncoming cars.
After carefully coaxing the puppies to safety using food, May and June finally allowed us to come close and we were able to bring them back to the Farm, so that we could treat and care for them. Sadly, both girls developed tick fever at the shelter, as well as a skin allergy, and they spent the first couple of months at the Farm, in quarantine, under close watch.
It’s been quite the journey for these two cuties, but fast forward a few months and May and June, despite their harrowing start in life, are finally coming of their shells!
We are really enjoying watching them blossom each day into beautiful, sweet-natured dogs and can’t wait to see them thrive in a home environment!
May is a calm and gentle puppy whose favourite pastime is to spend her afternoons basking in the sun with her sister. She enjoys tumbling and zooming around with her friends at the Farm but knows when to call it quits..
A slice of heaven for dogs, the vast space at the Farm means that May can take herself off for alone time away from people and other dogs when she feels like it. In fact, the majority of the day for this little possum is spent snoozing under a tree and passing away the day until dinner time.
An old soul at heart, May enjoys a quiet life – almost as much as she enjoys her food! May will do almost anything for treats whether it’s morning, day, or night and we’re sure this will prove useful when it comes to her training and teaching her new tricks!
Like her sibling, her early experiences as a puppy of having to fend for herself means that she can be wary of new people when she first meets them. While it can take her a while to warm to new visitors, once she spends a bit of time with you, May is comfortable enough to let her hair down.
Though May doesn’t actively seek out attention from the shelter wardens or people that visit the shelter, she has come a long way since her rescue in May and we are sure that with more exposure each day to new experiences and new people, we will continue to see her flourish!
May's perfect home
May is the ideal companion for an experienced adopter who lives a quiet life and is willing to spend time continuing to build her confidence. She has had a tough start in life and any new adopter will need to mindful of making sure that they need to take things slow and at her own pace.
May is a sweet-natured dog that just wants to spend her days snoozing at home and enjoying a yummy spoil or two. After all that she’s been through, she certainly deserves it!
We would prefer to place May in a calm, structured setting, that she is not too overwhelmed by lots of activity and has a routine in place to help her feel secure and stable.
With her calm and submissive nature towards dogs, May could be an ideal fit in a home with an older dog, who can show her the ropes.
