A scared shelter dog can’t fall asleep until he’s tucked in every night is now looking for a home


Getting tucked in every night is the only thing that gives Prince the pit bull comfort at this upstate New York animal shelter.

A shelter dog who insists on getting tucked in at night has people falling in love. Prince is a two-year-old Pit bull mix and has gone viral because of his special routine.

The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in New York says Prince came to them five months ago after he slipped his leash and ran away. Although they contacted the person who was supposedly looking after him, that person never came to claim him. The pup was terrified and curled up in the back of his kennel when he first arrived.

“He took a long time to warm up to us,” Nancy Haynes, director of behavior and enrichment at Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, told The Dodo. “Even when you approached his kennel, he would sit in the back and cower and shake. You would usually find him curled up in a ball at the back of his kennel.”

“We followed up, expecting that she would come to redeem him, but she never did,” Pearson said.
