Most Popular Puppies

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 a lot of people have particular feelings about certain breeds of dog. But it seems there’s just one dog breed out there that most Americans simply love the best. 

  • For the 31st year in a row, the Labrador Retriever tops the American Kennel Club’s list of America’s most popular dog breed.
  • 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.
  • But while the top spot remains unchanged, there was a bit of a shakeup in the Top Five, with the Poodle returning to the Top Five, for the first time since 1997.
  • Also, the Bulldog is out of the Top Five this year for the first time since 2012.
