There are two boys and two girls left in this litter. One sable male, one black male, and two black females. These last four pups appear to be doing well. Grace is doing the best she can and seems to be looking after these four pups.
Two of Grace's pups are really small and we try to give them the best start that we can, so we supplement their nursing with a nutritional supplement called Nutrcal. Once they get a taste for it they love it. As they grow they learn to lick it right off of a spoon. But for now a finger works. These pups are still very strong we are just trying to keep the two smaller ones from getting behind.

My name is Ryan Strickland and my wife Anita and I fell in love with the white dog, "Ziva" on the our dogs page. I found an older male "Yoda" and brought him home and we talked it over and decided to branch out Strickland's Kennels into NE Cape Fear GSD. Strickland's Kennels was a working retriever kennels that bred, raised, trained, and hunt tested retriever. We bred Golden and Chesapeake Bay Retriever since the early 1990's. I still train a retriever every so often for myself as a hunting dog or for a special client. We've been breeding and raising dogs since 1993.
