Check out Boss being King of the Hill at his home in Palm Beach, FL with Miriam and Kayla Heisser! Boss is a Ziva & Neko puppy from back in 2016! He's a handsome devil ain't he!
This is my dog Olsa that I've recently retired from our breeding program. Olsa is scheduled to get spayed next Monday August 28th, 2017. Then she is going to live with a wonderful lady named Karen Lewis of Middlesex, NC. Olsa is getting a BIG fenced in yard to run around in and will have access to a lot of farm land and ponds to swim in . She goes to her new home around September 11th after her stitches are removed and she had fully recovered from getting spayed.
Olsa was due back on August 4th, 2017. Last Wednesday Olsa had an X-ray and it was discovered she only had one puppy inside her. Again Olsa went back to the vet on Thursday for a check up and the vet stated that she was not in distress and showed no signs of being in trouble. But she did state that she felt Olsa would whelp soon. We watched her closely and Friday she showed signs of starting to come into labor. As of 1 am Sat. August 12th, still no puppy. But by later in the morning Olsa whelped her puppy a female black & tan that was still born! This is very sad for us. At this time we are going to allow Olsa to recover from her pregnancy and get her in to be spayed as soon as possible. After she has heeled up from that surgery we will start to search fro her a forever retirement home.
Olsa was due back on August 4th, 2017 and so far she has NOT had her puppies. We just got back from our vet's office and discovered that she only has one puppy inside of her the best we could tell. At this time she is in no danger or distress. Hopefully she will whelp this puppy soon! If not in the next couple of days then she will go in for a C-section and a spayed at the same time. Once she has healed up and all her stitches removed then she'll be put up for adoption to a forever home as a fun and friendly pet. If we are lucky we may be able to save the puppy but our priority is Olsa at this time.
We are getting concerned about Olsa not having whelped her puppies that were due this past Fri. on August 4th. It's looking more and more like a false pregnancy!
Check out these little to BIG guys. These two are Deva & Fritzie. They are from Xena and Jauger's litter last year. Hard to believe something so small can get that BIG in a year! German Shepherds are truly an amazing breed!
Well summer time has returned and the dogs are back in the ponds! The old man Yoda is just hanging out cooling! Grace is waiting on me to throw something into the pond for her to chase. The white pup Boateng ain't quite got brave enough yet to jump in but he's thinking about it!
As always we love to hear and see back from the pups that leave our kennels. These two are a couple of our favorites, Ruby & Lucy. They live with a good friend of mine Mike Mcavoy and is wife Barbara in Jacksonville, NC. Ruby and Lucy are pups from Jauger & Grace's last litter. Grace is due again with a litter from Jauger on September 4th.
These two handsome white devils are a couple of pups from Ziva's last litter. Caspie is their Pappa. Blizzard lives with his family in Richlands, NC. Boateng, named after a German Soccer Star I'm told, lives with his family in Clinton, NC. But ole Boateng is right here at N.E. Cape Fear River German Shepherd Dogs going through our basic obedience training. He should be finishing up around the end of September.
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.
