Dutchess whelped one healthy puppy on Jan. 6th, 2015. Mom and pup are both doing well despite the cold weather. Cedar chips, insulated whelping box, 2 heat lamps, and a thermostat, they are snug as a bug in a rug! This puppy is getting fat fast. We're still thinking of a temporary nick name until her forever home family names her.
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.
