While driving your car, do you sometimes wonder which direction to go? Then come meet Hippocampus. He'll be glad to put his paw on you to remind you where you're going! And when you're back home, this playful boy will jump up and paw you just so he can give you kisses and get you to scratch his head.

Hippocampus has lots of love and kisses to give, and he's happy to give them to all humans he meets, whether he knows them or not. In his foster home, he's happy to play with his dog buddy and is interested in fetching his squishy toys. He's a quiet but active lad who answers to "sit" and is working on his leash and house training.

This smart boy would love a home where he can always be engaged with his people - and also with a doggy housemate. Drive over here and he'll give you a paw and a kiss!
Come meet your new best friend
