What’s in a Name? Effect of Breed Perceptions & Labeling on Attractiveness, Adoptions & Length of Stay for Pit-Bull-Type Dogs

Fig 4

Columns represent normalized mean attractiveness values (with error bars for standard errors) for matched pit-bull-type dogs and lookalikes without labels (on left) and when dogs received either the pit bull or lookalike breed labels (on right).

Without labels, pit-bull-type dogs were viewed as more attractiveness than lookalikes. With labels, participants preferred dogs with lookalike breeds.
