13 years ago this month, we were traveling thruMaine by car, all the way from WI. We stopped, and met Jerry and Kay. We met the available pups, asked questions, and moved onward. About 2 hrs. Later as we fueled our car, we met a Maine state trooper. Asking,'what do you think of Sukee Kennels?', he said they had the 'best **** dogs in the state.'
That evening, in Bar Harbor, we walked to the local firehouse, (I'm a firefighter), and learned they were part paid full time and paid by call....the guy I talked with, when asked the same query, said that he hated dogs. He then added....'if I ever got a dog, I'd get it from them.'
We called the kennel back, driving back the next morning, to get a GSD that was great with our kids and grand kids. Go visit. Talk. I believe you will be impressed.
