10 Most Popular Dog Breeds
This may come as no surprise to you Lab owners, but the Labrador Retriever has topped the American Kennel Club (AKC®) list of most popular dog breeds for the 23rd year in a row!
The AKC top 10 are:
- Labrador Retriever
- German Shepherd
- Golden Retriever
- Yorkshire Terrier
Number 11 on the list? French Bulldogs. These small but strong and playful pups have risen dramatically in popularity for the past 10 years.
Trivia: Did you know Labradors aren’t from Labrador? The breed is originally from Newfoundland, an area just a little further south on the east coast of Canada.
