Dolce is the first and only liver colored female FCR to receive her Grand Championship. She was the top liver female in the country in breed points (breed points are counted for when you take Best of Breed and defeat other FCRs that are entered), and was ranked # 15 for all FCRs in the country in breed points for 2011. She received her Bronze Grand Championship in June 2012 – there are only 21 FCRs that have reached this level and she is the first liver female, and only the second liver.
