    Contributor(s):: Bennett, S. L., Weng, H. Y., Walker, S. L., Placer, M., Litster, A.

    In this study, it was hypothesized that different results would be obtained by canine behavior assessments performed within 24 hr of shelter intake (Day 0) and after a 3-day acclimation period (Day 3). Safety Assessment for Evaluating Rehoming assessments were performed on 33 dogs at 2 municipal...
