About the Name: Three types of oaks are native to Utah and all are shrub-like. The largest and most common oak in Utah and throughout the Rocky Mountains is Gambel oak. Its extremely hardy and provides beautiful fall foliage. All attributes of this amazing working golden retriever.
Oakley is our fearless go anywhere, try anything dog. Her pedigree is saturated with winners. 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 golden gift that also includes our own foundation female, Sheila.
