Dr. May’s fur family started in 2012 when he adopted his first French bulldog, Edgar, from a local family that could no longer keep him. It was love at first sight!

A couple years later Dr. May’s friend, a Veterinarian in Arizona, contacted him regarding a dog named Edna. He learned that Edna was going to be auctioned off as a way to raise money because her owners could no longer take care of her. Instead, Dr. May decided he would put forth the money needed to adopt Edna! Dr. May flew to Arizona in the fall of 2014 and proudly took Edna home to Fargo.

Five months later, Dr. May also adopted Edna’s biological brother Elmer to add to his growing family.
