These little guys are growing fast and getting around well. A few of them have already learned how to follow mom out of the whelping box. They find that the concrete floor outside is a little cooler than the blanket. Not to mention mom can't get away from them now whenever they want to nurse.
These pups from Dutchy & Jauger are now two weeks old and growing fast! Even the little runt is doing well. A couple of them have started to try and walk and they've all got their eyes open.
This handsome guy is a recent puppy from our last Ziva litter we did with Jauger. His mom Ziva is now officially retired from the puppy business and has retired to the couch. Ain't he looking good!
This little fella is the runt. We were getting worried about him a few days ago because his litter mates were getting SO much bigger than him. This make it really hard for him to fight for a spot to nurse. Well, we decided to step in with some Nutra-cal from the vet and give him a little extra nursing time without interference from his brothers and sisters. He is doing very well now and is starting to catch up. I've nick named him "Taschenwelpe", which is German for Pocket Puppy!
These little fat babies are now 1 week old and doing well. Even the runt is starting to catch up!
Dutches whelped 8 puppies from Jauger on June 7th, 2018. There are three females, one sable and two black & tans. There are two sable males and three black & tan males. Jauger is a high energy and intelligent dog. Dutches is a sweet tempered shepherd that is fairly laid back but she does a really good prey drive. This is a first time pairing of these two dogs. But they are both proven producers. Jaugers pups are very intelligent with loads of energy. Dutches pups are also very smart and have strong protective instincts. The pups will have their vet visit on July 21st and should be ready to go out to their forever homes on July 28th. The pups are now 24 hours old and all appear to be doing well. Dutches is also doing well.
This "purdy girl" is Stella. She is a recent puppy from Ziva & Jauger. She lives with Mr. Angel Curiel in La Quinta, CA. She certainly has her mother's ear!
Grace certainly likes to beat the heat with attacking the water from the hose! I never get tired of watching her do it and she never gets tired of chasing it.
This handsome fella is Grimm. He is from our recent litter with Jauger and Ziva. Which was Ziva's last litter and she has since been spayed and now resides in the house and the couch! Grimm lives with Mr. Nicholas Kijowski in Ayden, NC.
Check out Kylo. He is from of one of our recent litters with Jauger & Grace. He is now nine months old and weighs 71lbs. Ain't he a handsome devil! Kylo lives with the Ludlum family in Ash, NC.
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.
