Hi! My name is Shannon! I was browsing through the site, looking for posts about Sequoyah German Shepherds, and I noticed that you have a Rayna & Patron puppy. I recently sent in a deposit for one of their puppies that will be born sometime in January/February, and I wanted to ask you about your dog if you don't mind. I am also a first time owner, and I am primarily looking for a dog to take hiking and trail running with me, although we will of course play fetch and such as well! I talked with Sherle at length, and she was a delight to speak with and I really feel at ease with her suggestions and advice. If possible, could you tell me about how your dog has fit into your family's life? I know that's a very broad question, but I would really be happy to hear anything you have to say about your Icon.
