  9. Characteristics of animals entering an Animal Control or Humane Society shelter in a midwestern city

    Contributor(s):: Shore, E. R., Girrens, K.

    This study compared companion animals entering a humane society shelter with those entering an animal control shelter in the same city, and both to data on companion animals in the area. The study compared stray and relinquished animals. Adult dogs were more numerous than pups, particularly at...

  10. Comparison of adoption agency breed identification and DNA breed identification of dogs

    Contributor(s):: Voith, V. L., Ingram, E., Mitsouras, K., Irizarry, K.

    Governmental and other agencies may require dog caregivers (owners) to provide breed identification of their dogs. This study compares breed identification by adoption agencies with identification by DNA analysis in 20 dogs of unknown parentage. Of the 20 dogs who had been adopted from 17...

  11. Dog breed stereotype and exposure to negative behavior: effects on perceptions of adoptability

    Contributor(s):: Wright, J. C., Smith, A., Daniel, K., Adkins, K.

    The purpose of the study was to determine if brief exposure to a dog behaving badly or in a friendly manner affects subsequent perceptions of the target dog's and other dogs' adoptability. Participants viewed a videotape of an adoptable German shepherd behaving either aggressively or prosocially...

  12. Effect of breed, cage type, and reproductive phase on fecal corticosterone levels in doe rabbits

    Contributor(s):: Prola, L., Cornale, P., Renna, M., Macchi, E., Perona, G., Mimosi, A.

    Fecal corticosterone concentration (FCC) is increasingly being used as a noninvasive indicator of stress in assessment of nonhuman animal welfare. The aim of this study was to evaluate effects of breed, cage type, reproductive phase, and their interactions on FCC levels in doe rabbits. A total of...

  13. Function of tongue-playing of cattle in association with other behavioral and physiological characteristics

    Contributor(s):: Ishiwata, T., Uetake, K., Eguchi, Y., Tanaka, T.

    To study the function of tongue-playing of cattle, this study observed 71 Japanese Black x Holstein steers after feeding in 2 repetitive experiments. The number of steers who performed tongue-playing did not differ among the 3 levels of environmentally enriched pens. Most (90.6%) performances of...

  14. Preliminary investigation of morphological differences between ten breeds of horses suggests selection for paedomorphosis. (Special Issue: Equitation science.)

    Contributor(s):: Goodwin, D., Levine, M., McGreevy, P. D.

    Paedomorphosis is the retention of juvenile morphology at maturity and is important in generating evolutionary change in domestic species and species in the wild. When comparing dogs with the wolf, this preliminary study saw paedomorphosis in their physical and behavioural traits (Goodwin,...

  15. Quantifying the shelter rabbit population: an analysis of Massachusetts and Rhode Island animal shelters

    Contributor(s):: Cook, A. J., McCobb, E.

    Scholarly work on the nonhuman animal shelter population has widely focused on cats and dogs. As a result, little is known about the population dynamics of domestic rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in shelters. The records from 4 companion animal shelters in Massachusetts and Rhode Island were...

  16. The effect of familiarity on behavior of kenneled dogs during interactions with conspecifics

    Contributor(s):: Pullen, A. J., Merrill, R. J. N., Bradshaw, J. W. S.

    Kenneled environments often prevent direct physical contact between dogs, potentially causing stress, and so it has been recommended that such contact should be provided. This study examined the effect of familiarity on the behavior of dogs during off-lead interaction. Kenneled dogs (3 breeds)...

  17. Dairy calves' adaptation to group housing with automated feeders

    | Contributor(s):: Fujiwara, M., Rushen, J., Passille, A. M. de

    Group housing of dairy calves with automated milk feeders has likely welfare and labour saving advantages but delays in the calves adapting to the feeding system may reduce these advantages. We examined factors that influence calves' adaptation to the feeders. In Exp. 1, 77 Holstein calves...

  18. Owner perceptions of companion dog expressions of positive emotional states and the contexts in which they occur

    | Contributor(s):: Buckland, E. L., Volk, H. A., Burn, C. C., Abeyesinghe, S. M.
