The DODO reports a story for a pit bull named Valcor, and the first thing people notice about
When Valcor was dropped at the shelter, his previous owner let the staffers know that the dog “needs blankets near him at all times so he can suck on them.” And, sure enough, as soon as Valcor was given a blanket, he didn’t need much assistance in getting cozy.
“Since he doesn’t have his hearing, it seems that being swaddled in his blankets(which he does himself) is comforting to him,” Katie Menges, media manager of AFV, told The Dodo. “He curls himself up in his blankets and sleeps like a baby until someone touches him or he decides he wants some play time.”
Valcor was surrendered to the shelter after his family had a baby. His previous owners claimed they had to leave him behind because he had become protective of his littlest sibling, Menges
“When we brought in different dogs for him to interact with for a ‘dog test’ he did really well,” Menges said. “He does make some funny noises that the other dogs don’t really understand, but that is also very common for deaf pets.”
