0 Pet Adoption | R/F Humane Society: Oakley's Got Her Aim High


At 35 lbs. and 1 ½ years old, this girl is just about the perfect size and age for almost any family. Oakley attended our yearly event at the high school, has gone to several adoption events and has shown exceptional manners with people and dogs. Not that she doesn’t have her silly side, she’s more than happy to show off her super-fast zoomies! With her velvet soft fur, sooty snout and golden brown eyes, Oakley is not just a show stopper, but a heartbreaker as well.

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?
