Spissu, Nicoletta (2010) Il Benessere dei cani ospitati nei canili: valutazione dei parametri comportamentali e fisiologici anche ai fini dell’adottabilita’ e del contenimento del fenomeno del randagismo. Doctoral Thesis.
The present study evaluates the welfare of shelter dogs in Sardinia using physiologic and ethologic
parameters like ematochemical analysis on blood samples and ethogram to assess the adoptability
index of each dog . In Italy animal shelters suffer different problems like overpopulation, lack of
human and economic resources. It is important to test the welfare of shelter dogs and to evaluate
their ethologic characteristics and personality traits to evidence any behavioral disorder. Many dogs
are relinquished to shelters because of behavioural problems so a goal could be reduce the number
of relinquished dogs giving consultancy services to those people who want to adopt. The main aim
of shelters should be giving dogs in adoption and the success of the adoptions. Other important
factor is to improve all the structural requirements to convert the shelters into pleasant places in
which animals can express all behavioural patterns typical of the species.
