A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: 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! 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. Ask to meet him today!

Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 21-Dec-2017
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, and tail is in neutral position with a relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Toy: 3. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Body is stiff.
Summary: During the handling assessment Kid Cudi was friendly and social toward the assessor. He was a bit distracted, and became tense with the toy item, taking away the toy with a high tail, tense posture, and turned away from assessor.
PLAY GROUP : Kid Cudi was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior with other dogs is unknown.
12/21: When off leash at the Care Center, Kid Cudi hyper-motivated. He was jumping on the gate, barking and bouncing all around eager to meet the dog. He enters the pens with high energy, persistently body slamming into the novel female dog, and leaps over her. He ignores all interruptions and is separated due to the inexperience of the helper dog.
Date of intake: 20-Dec-2017
Summary: Friendly and outgoing.
Date of initial: 20-Dec-2017
Summary: Friendly, excited, allows petting
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Kid Cudi so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment.
Kid Cudi is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Recommendations: No young children (under 5)
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.
Potential challenges: Resource guarding
Potential challenges comments: While he gave an appropriate warning of his discomfort (tense, takes away toy), Kid did show possible potential to guard items he considers valuable. His response was appropriate and we cannot be certain if this behavior will be seen in a future home environment, but out of an abundance of concern that young children may not be able to recognize or respect Kid’s signals, we caution about this observed behavior. Older, dog savvy children can be considered pending interaction.
