He has a great smile, too. Lollypop Farm recommends Champ go to a home with kids age 10 or older, and he needs to meet any dogs already in the home. Lollypop Farm is celebrating Spring Break with 25% off adoption fees on all cats and dogs through Saturday the 19th. Champ is also eligible for the Seniors-for-Seniors program so approved adopters age 60 or older can bring him home for free. To find out more about Champ, call 223-1330 or visit him at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Lex, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, is still available!
