Everyone who meets him loves him. Champ is one of those rare dogs who connects with people through his quiet confidence, gentle manners and his irresistible mug! His favorite thing is hanging out with human friends. He will sit or lay beside your chair for hours as long as there is a chance you might pet him. You say you give doggie massages? You will be a god to him. Because he values your company so much, Champ needs a place where someone will be home with him most of the time.

Champ loves his leisurely morning strolls. He walks well on a leash, but if something interests him, he will pull strongly to try to convince you that it needs investigating. He knows sit and wait at the gate, and he LOVES treats of any kind. He prefers short walks and less-active games indoors with air-conditioning to outdoor activities when it is hot and humid. When the temperatures are cooler, he loves chillin’ in the yard.

Champ was tested with well-behaved, dog-savvy children aged 11 and 12. He loved doing obedience tricks for treats and walking on leash with them. He has a high prey drive and will try to chase squirrels or deer during walks. He cannot live with cats. He does not get along with male dogs. He plays very aggressively with females. He would need to meet any potential canine roommates to see if they are compatible. He would be happy being an only dog. He would not be a good dog to take to dog parks, but he loves riding in cars.

If you are looking for a low-energy companion to be a member of your family to love and be loved by, Champ is the friend for you. Please contact the Farley Foundation at or 910.315.9569 for more information.

About The Farley Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

Betsy and John Ficarro,
The Foundation’s principals who named it in memory of their first shelter dog, Sir Farley of Pinehurst, rescued minutes before being euthanized, Betsy Ficarro, President and Chief Operating Officer, said: “Our mission will be to reduce unnecessary euthanasia of otherwise unwanted, adoptable animals in Moore County and elsewhere in North Carolina.
We will operate in association with owners Debbie Adoree and Jim Dickenson of Seven Lakes Kennels in nearby Seven Lakes, who have agreed to provide boarding space at their facility to help us fulfill our mission.”
John Ficarro, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our primary objective will be to provide temporary, transitional accommodations for animals identified for rescue but we will undertake
other rescue opportunities and promote local animal welfare issues when the need arises. We also intend to
work with and support other local rescue organizations.”
Mr. and Mrs. Ficarro have supported a number of local and national animal welfare organizations for several
years through their substantial volunteer work and financial contributions. John Ficarro, a retired corporate
attorney from New York has routinely provided pro bono legal services and other support while Betsy Ficarro
has given time and resources working with these groups to provide animal care and promote adoptions. A
retired senior flight attendant, she most recently was the Volunteer Coordinator at the Animal Center of Moore
County, North Carolina.
