Dutches' pups are now one week old and boy are they gettimg fat! The heat has been tough on them but they are handling it well. Their kennel is outside but under a nice shelter with a ceiling and puppy kennel has two fans running on high when the temp. is above eighty degrees. Dutches is also still doing well and she is a very attentive mother.
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.
