Grace Whelped nine puppies on October 3rd, 2018. There were four males and five females. We lost one male during the first night. AS of now the remaining eight pups appear to be doing well. Mom, Grace is doing good to. Of the three males two appear to be a dark colored black and tan and one is sable. There are three dark sable female pups and two dark black and tan females. All of the males are spoken for at this time as well as one of the females. This is another first time pairing of these two dogs. Both dogs are proven parents. Grace is a sable colored Shepherd. She has got a very sweet temperament. Unlike most German Shepherds she's never met a stranger. She loves people. She has an extremely high ball and prey drive. If it moves she'll chase it! She is an absolute tennis ball freak! She is around 60lbs and well built. Cash is a BIG hard charging dog with a bite like an alligator. He also has a very high prey drive. He is very protective of his handler and quite defensive toward strangers. He weighs in at around 85lbs.
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.
