Not long after getting Leroy back, they asked former University of Washington Professor Jim Ha, a Certified Animal Behaviorist, to examine Leroy and determine if he could be adopted after his ordeal at the “Sanctuary.” I met Leroy for the first time when Dr. Ha checked him out.
Leroy made it clear from the outset that he LOVED people. He spent most of the time either rolling around in the lap of the person taking care of him or being cradled like a baby in their arms.

Jim Ha, PhD/CAAB
Jim is a Research Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Washington and a Certified Applied Jim Ha and Elsie Animal Behaviorist. His academic research interests are in learning more about the social behavior of animals including primates, crows, and killer whales. Jim has demonstrated consistent success in applying the knowledge he's gained from his academic career to domestic animals living in an ever more urbanized world.
James Ha, the University of Washington
Jim Ha has been extensively trained in the social behavior of birds and mammals, with a special focus on highly social species like domestic dogs.
He has received a Ph.D. in Zoology with a specialization in animal behavior from Colorado State University (1989), and professional credentialing as a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, which is the highest level of certification in dog behavior that is available. From 1990 until University retirement in 2015, Jim worked as a Research Professor in the Animal Behavior Program at the University of Washington. As a retired professor, he continues to do what he enjoys the most: teaching in his online UW Certificate in Applied Animal Behavior program and conducting research on complex social behavior and cognition of several animal species. He recently retired from his business in performing in-home evaluations and treatments of behavior issues (80% aggression) in dogs, cats and parrots but continues as a Consulting Behaviorist in advising on many such cases each year as well as consulting on behavior and welfare issues in the legal system. He currently consults on these issues with groups such as the Courthouse Dogs Foundation, Seattle Animal Shelter, the Seattle Parks Department, Homeward Pets Adoption Shelter, and Purdue University's Center for Animal Welfare Science, as well as multiple private pet-industry companies. He was involved with the development of the professional certification program for applied animal behaviorists through the Animal Behavior Society and has served as a member of the Animal Behavior Society's Executive Committee for many years. He currently serves on the Society's Applied Animal Behavior Committee.
