Unfortunately, there are several things to address with this image. Firstly, it isnt sharp, possibly due to using a slow shutter speed. You used ISO 80 and 1/20 sec, whereas you could have upped the ISO to say, 400 and then had a shutter speed of around 1/125 sec. As it is, it is also overexposed by a stop or two, so the whites have blown completely. Combined with the unsharpness and poor black and white conversion, it has robbed the image completely of any character Jazz has.
Pushing the ISO up to 400 and using a shutter speed such as 1/250 or 1/500 would be better, and the fast shutter speed would have frozen any movement in the dog anyway.
I appreciate you are using a bridge camera, but it is advanced enough to be able to control all the different factors.

This image has so much potential, which have clearly been explained in the great critique provided by Nick.

i don't know what the requirements are for a pet passport so I cannot comment on that and also, as Nick has covered everything else so well, I must leave it at that.

I would actualy be rather surprised if this image met the required criteria. 1/20 has resulted in a very sooft image far more than software can help. You are also well over exposed.

You must look at your LCD after shooting, especially if important. That would clearly illustrate these issues allowing a rethink and reshoot.
