Hopper has had a tough life. He was found as a stray wandering down a parkway, and his paws were very sore from his time on the run. Because his paws were painful, he would hop when he walked, which earned him the name Hopper. Hopper is now all healed from his days as a stray and anxious to find his forever home.

Hopper is a friendly and affectionate boy who wants nothing more than to love and be loved. He loves to go for walks, but he is strong on the leash and will need someone who can teach him leash manners. He also loves to have you throw his special red toy so he can bring it back to you so you can throw it again. When you are done throwing the toy, he loves to sit beside/on you on the couch and cuddle.

Unfortunately, Hopper was diagnosed with a medical disorder called lymphangiectasia. He is fine as long as he is fed a special food and takes medication. We would love to find Hopper a forever home OR foster home with someone to take care of him and make sure he gets the medication and special food he needs. In you are interested in fostering Hopper, FOHA will cover his medical expenses...all you need to do is give Hopper the TLC that he craves.

Given that I have entered my golden years,  I am eligible for FOHA's Senior Care Program.  Inquiries can be directed to Rob Mock at robfoha@aol.com.

This dog can only be adopted within the Washington D.C. metro area.
