As the only dog child in the May household, Bo knows he holds a special place in his owners’ hearts, and he’s not afraid to use it to his advantage. His cunning yet adorable tactics have not only endeared him to his family but also taught his human dad, Byron May, that dogs truly are another cherished member of the family.

When it comes to treats, Bo is not a picky eater, but pup cups are a definite favorite.

Bo’s name holds sentimental value for the Mays, as it was carefully chosen to complement the names of the other boys in the family, Brandon and Branson, creating a delightful alliteration.

Bo has a heart of gold and is quick to shower his family with unconditional love and affection, proving time and time again that his loyalty knows no bounds.
