This is Bandit. He is from one of our Grace & Jauger litters from back in Feb. 2017. He lives with Conner Coupland in Wilmington. When Conner sent me these photos I was SUPER excited! Because my dog background before GSD's was in working waterfowl retrievers. Bandit's mom Grace has as high a prey and retrieve drive that any of the sup'ed up field trial retrievers I've worked has ever had! I always wondered if a GSD could get the same job done. Well, now I know! Thank you Connoer for the Update and making your GSD a waterfowl retriever. Just goes to show you these dogs can do nearly anything!
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.
