We predict theoretically a novel type of an extremely robust optical vector soliton that originates from trapping of a dipole (HG01-type) mode by a soliton-induced waveguide. As a specific example, we consider two incoherently interacting optical beams propagating along the direction z in a bulk saturable medium. The model describes, in the isotropic approximation, solitons in photorefractive materials
