Introducing Bruce's Adoption Update

May 27, 2023:

This evening, Bruce found a home super locally, like right in our neighborhood. with a family who has 1 1/2 acres, a six foot fence, and five children who fell in love with him at first meet. We can visit him anytime we want. Bruce is no longer in a kennel.  All at a Lake Texoma beach! 

May 9, 2023:

Bruce came to us in the breed of a great Dane. A lady bought him for his breed, but never cared about his need. A ranch hand I'd say, took to Bruce throughout his working day. Bruce was not allowed...out on the range...Bruce viewed his ranch from his lonely cage. The lady and the hand finally made a deal.

Bruce is an AKC registered 10-month-old male great Dane. After Bruce's release from his prison, five people are taking care of him in shifts. We cannot offer Bruce a forever home. He is just now learning how to be a puppy. He's a great working breed and so easy to train. 

The first dog rescued from that ranch, again with negotiated permission, is a female Belgian malinios whom her daddy calls Bristol. Bristol is introducing Bruce into his lost puppyhood. Bruce goes to the beach to play just about everyday. Someone's always got him. Unfortunately, Bruce has to sleep in a kennel at night. 

Bruce was bred to hunt boars originally, but was found to keep up with horses hauling wagons on long cold treks through mountains blanketed in snow and ice over rocks. If you ever hear one thing about great Danes, the one thing you will hear is, "That is the most genteel dog I've ever met!" Great Danes are also fearless!

Bruce needs a forever home. Bruce is not for sale. There are no rehoming fees. All we knew, was if that lady that bought Bruce, was willing to let him go, as a collective, we could schedule a time for Bruce to be the dog he needs to be all day long at the lake. 

Bruce never got to be a puppy at first. He is sure learning how now with Belgain Bristol, that canine female temptress! Bruce needs a forever loving home. Bruce is a big responsibility. He is teething, and we need big big bones. Bruce is trying to chew on iron picnic tables.
