Facts about Bear

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Nothing makes Bear's eyes light more than when he sees his human companion! Bear is sure to be that special someone's little shadow; prancing behind, he is sure to be the heartbeat at your feet. Bear loves walks, car rides, being toted in your arms, snuggling under the covers and scrambled eggs. Could you be that special someone waiting for Bear??

Bear was turned into the county shelter as a senior pet. He is vetted and healthy but has experienced a little incontinence due to a major UTI (which is being treated). Bear will follow others dogs to the yard for potty breaks and will eliminate very time; it's just when he see's you, that he may get a little excited and may dribble. At this phase in Bear's life, all he wants most is a devoted, compassionate human who will nurture and love him for eternity.

To meet Bear, please contact the Farley Foundation at or 910-315-9569. Thank you for wanting to adopt a homeless animal in need and for giving this special little guy a second chance at life.

About The Farley Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

Pinehurst, NC, September 16, 2014: The Farley Foundation, Inc., a North Carolina non-profit corporation

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
