Oakley is our fearless go anywhere, try anything dog. She's a retrieving machine with a mind that's always engaged. If its not anchored down, she retrieves it. If there's fish in the pond she'll retrieve those. Personable and loving, she's expressive and independent. She always works out in front of us with a quick check back from time to time. Her pedigree is a gift that also includes our own foundation female, Sheila.
