I don't think there's any arguing that they're a large-scale commercial operation. Personally I don't like the fact that they don't post pedigrees, registered names, or hip/elbow scores on their females. I remember they used to do that. Years ago I had a friend with a dog from Sukee. He had a great temperament but was oversized and died young from crippling joint problems.

I can't tell you a thing about there kennel but I can share with you various encounters with owners I have met. We go up to Maine every June with our GSD, naturally that attracts other lovers of the breed. We have had numerous encounters with folks who have a dog from this kennel and speak nothing but praise for them. This past summer the owner of the boatyard had a beautifulblack male from the kennel, he was nice looking and had a wonderful temperment.This was not his first dog from Sukee so I guess that says something.
Hope this helps,
Pam

Differences in how two see something.

It seems cliff read that as "sue-key" which I'm sure is correct, and yeah agreed on erotic in a far east kind of way.

However,

I first read that as "suck-E", and thought what a name for a kennel!

disclaimer; I have never heard of the mentioned kennel, and know nothing of the dogs they produce merely making an observation on pronunciation of the name.

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.
