Kid Cudi had an English Bulldog named Freshie who he got in 2010. Cudi told his followers that he had never intended to have a dog and was generally a bit nervous around them. However, after securing a role on HBO’s How to Make It In America, Cudi got Freshie to help make himself feel comfortable, as walking dogs was a crucial part of his character, Domingo Brown. Cudi called Freshie his “guardian angel” because of how the pup helped him get through periods of depression. Freshie passed away in August 2021.
After I got Freshie, I was wayyy more comfortable w the dogs onset. It worked. But at the time I had no idea I would have such a best friend in my life. He’s been here for 11 years, and my life has been one hell of a rollercoaster this whole time. Freshie was with me through it all everyday. He loved me. He really did.@kidcudi, Instagram, August 2021
