Cudi is a sweet dog, and there’s never been a “stuffie” this friendly pooch didn’t want to squeeze in the play yard at Brooklyn’s facility of New York City’s Animal Care Centers. Young, healthy, adoptable and adorable, no one has come to adopt him, and on Wednesday – the very last day of January 2018, Cudi is scheduled to be put to sleep.
Let’s paint a picture of this friendly boy through the eyes of a volunteer:
“Well someone got the first part of his name right- he’s nothing but a big KID! Kid Cudi is a magnet to toys and when we went out to the play yard, he made a beeline for an old discarded one. In spite of the freezing cold, it seemed like he could entertain himself for hours… prancing around the yard, tossing a ball to himself, play bowing to his toys. His way of “sharing” his toys involved getting into my lap, stuffie in his mouth, and begging for petting all the while holding his prized possession. What a goof ball!”
And there’s more to be said about this dog:
“Since he is a large, young guy, Kid does pull a bit on the leash but he seems housebroken and is eager to relieve himself. He knows a few basic commands and given his enthusiasm for treats and toys, he’s likely to learn more! Kid does everything to the extreme–including playing with other dogs! He’s high energy and even a little rambunctious at times. Kid is looking for a family that is ready to provide lots of exercise, continue both his dog and human socialization and provide him all the love he deserves.”

Due to Kid Cudi’s response to the Toy item of SAFER, indicating possible potential to guard high-value items (though he showed appropriate restraint and did not escalate), we feel Kid Cudi may be most comfortable in a home without very young children. We recommend he be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games.
