Kid Cudi: Sweet dog, his ‘stuffie’ and his last sunrise in New York City

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.”

Recommendations comments:
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.

    Please don’t kill him he’s so full of life there is someone out there for him please give it more time it’s not right

    I hope someone steps up to adopt him. Given his status as a “pitbull type ” looking dog he will probably be euthanized and that is a shame! New York seems to have a high rate of euthanasia amongst dogs like that!

    Beautiful, friendly dog, that loves to play. Needs training but so many dogs you adopt from a shelter all need some form of training. A friendly dog to a person, will be a wonderful family dog too. Training is the key to help these dogs and it doesn’t take a lot to do that. Most dogs want to please their owners once they know what is expected of them and you will be rewarded 10 times over.

    A volunteer adds: Kid Cudi was found tied up outside of Brooklyn ACC just before Christmas (in dog years that’s forever ago!!). He has a lot of energy and can be a handful if he hasn’t had enough exercise, but he is SO sweet and so much fun!! He actually walks very nicely on leash once he’s run around for a bit and is very responsive to guidance (he already knows “sit” and “down”). He is crazy for toys and can carry multiple at once and keeps the party going after I’ve put him back in his cage (one time I swear I caught him using one as a pillow!). Toys might be his main squeeze but he is attentive and loves attention and often multitasks by seeking affection in my lap with a ball in his mouth. He is really very waggy and upbeat and it would be a waste for him not to be someone’s sidekick! Kid Cudi is estimated to be 2 years old, weighs 55 pounds, and is neutered. PLEASE share him!!
