This adorable little pistol of a dog is named after…you guessed it: Annie Oakley, the American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter of the mid 1880’s. Now, believe it or not, Annie Oakley of marksmanship fame, married a former dog trainer. Frank E. Butler was an Irish immigrant who also considered himself a master marksman. The two met when Frank placed a $100 bet (about $2,200 today!) with a Cincinnati hotel owner, that he could beat any local fancy shooter. Imagine his surprise when his opponent was a five-foot-tall 15 year old girl!! Butler lost, missing his 25th shot, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Our Little Sure Shot is also a petite girl, perhaps of Whippet or Greyhound lineage, a smart & affectionate pup who just wants to belong to a family – do you think it could be yours?
