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.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Apr. 17)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 58 degrees; 1.53 feet below pool. Striped bass fishing is great drifting live shad around the islands or past the bridges near the rivers. Rain should finish off the spawn and look for bait on the banks with feeding fish near them. Top waters are working on sandy flats in 2-8 feet of water. Smallmouth bass are good on live shad along the bluffs on the banks in 2-4 feet of water. Also fair on spooks early and look for largemouth off the banks in 6-12 feet of water on main lake points near rocks. Catfish are fair on cut shad along the rocks in 30-45 feet of water. Drifting cut rough fish or gizzard shad in 5-10 feet of water near the river could produce a big fish after a rain with an inflow of dirty water. Crappie are good on brush piles in 12-18 feet of water on jigs using electronics to locate active fish working in and out of the brush. Look for spawners shallow with warmer temperatures in the forecast. Report by Jacob Orr, Guaranteed Guide Service Lake Texoma. Threadfin shad are spawning along the banks. Hybrid stripers are good on topwaters in the morning along rocky banks. Some days the egrets are working leading the way to fish. Some schooling activity under gulls. After the morning bite ends switch to swimbaits and Alabama rigs in 10-25 feet of water on the edges and dropoffs. This pattern should hold for the next 4-6 weeks while shad spawn near docks and banks. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
