It is with a SAD heart that I tell you folks that we lost Freddie on April 15th, 2021. Freddie was a war veteran with tours in Afghanistan as a bomb searching dog. We adopted him and he was placed with a dear friend of mine Bill Connell in Union County NC. The Connell house hold is certainly saddened by this event. Freddie had a long and full life. I like to think that God chose to make dog's life's short so we could have more of them!
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.
