Abstract: Nowadays, most of the dog shelters in Catalonia are swamped and of the dog adoptions that are successfully carried out, a significant percentage are unsuccessful. One of the most common justifications for these returns is post-adoption behavioral problems, such as aggression, anxiety problems, fears or compulsive behaviors. It is in this sense that the present investigation is oriented to analyze the impact of the welfare of the dogs while they are in shelters in their behavior and in the later adoptions, in order to generate evidence that shows the levels of interrelation between the three variables. The analysis of the different factors and elements that can have some influence on the dogs that have been collected by animal shelters, as a previous step to their adoptions, shows a moderate correlation between welfare, behavior and success in adoptions, so that the identification of risk and protection factors for the welfare of dogs in the centers, from a biopsychosocial point of view, provides a theoretical basis for predicting the results of adoption processes, provided that they are analyzed together with the variable adoptive families which, although not being a variable directly considered, has also been identified as a determining factor in the success or failure of adoptions in similar percentage proportions to animal behavior.
