This project is part of a a year-long research project on behalf of PetRescue – investigating the risk factors associated with low appeal animals on their website. A part of the project is this web-based scoring system to assess photographic attributes of the four most common breeds within the data (Australian Cattle Dog, Jack Russell Terrier, Staffordshire Bull-Terrier and Labrador Retriever). These data in addition to other results will be correlated with the length of stay (time) to determine whether certain phenotypic characteristics enhance adoptability of dogs.
