While there are certainly some people out there who don't love dogs, let’s face it, the majority of Americans are dog lovers, and there’s no doubt everyone has their favorite breed of pooch. But it seems there’s just one dog breed out there that most Americans simply love the best.
For the 27th year in a row, the Labrador Retriever tops the American Kennel Club’s list of America’s most popular dog. It isn’t much of a surprise the Lab earns the top spot, since it’s considered a family friendly pooch, with an eager-to-please temperament.
One breed that seems to be gaining in popularity is the French Bulldog, which rises two spots to number four this year, and kicks the Beagle out of the Top Five for the first time since 1998.
Here are the top 10 most popular dog breeds in the US:
- Labrador Retriever
- German Shepherd
- Golden Retriever
- French Bulldog
- Yorkshire Terrier
- German Shorthaired Pointer
