On August 15, 2010, Effie achieved the new AKC title, "Grand Champion."  Grand Champion is a designation who have gone on to compete after achieving their AKC Championship, beating other Champions and earning points.5-22-10_Effie_Ad  Effie completed her Gr CH with 25 points and 5 'major wins.' She is the 6th Toy Manchester Terrier to become a Grand Champion.  We are very proud that our girl is now "Gr CH Tropicfox Dreamgirl" as well as being the #4 Toy Manchester in Breed Points as of July 31, 2010. 

At only 2 years old, Effie just gets better as she continues to mature.  She truly is the ssence of 'Type' in Toy Manchester Terriers.  At 10.5lbs, Effie is well within the 'limit' for Toy Manchesters while still embodying power.  Effie's inherent refinement belies a tough terrier more than willing and able to carry out the historical functions of the breed.

Effie has been showing with her expert handler, Harry Bennett, for less than 6 months, and they have already ammassed an impressive record.  As the hot summer days begin to cool here in the South, look for Effie and Harry during the busy fall and winter show season.  We expect many more great things from this pair!
