My girl Ziva Diva was officially retired today. She went to the vet and got spayed. Right now she is NOT happy at all. But soon she'll be back to her normal self. Which for her is sleeping on the couch and chair every chance she gets, alerting us to stranger dangers, and letting us pet her when ever she feels like it. Ziva is a cat dog. Hates water with a purplely pink passion and will only allow you to touch her when she feels like it. She is the original White Witch of North East Cape Fear German Shepherd Dogs.
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.
