We love our dogs! And which breeds do we love best?
The American Kennel Club (AKC) just announced the list of the Top 10 most popular purebreed in 2008. For 18 years in a row, The Labrador retriever is the most popular purebred dog in America. Twice as many Labs were registered last year than any other breed.
The breed that saw the biggest increase in popularity was the bulldog-now in the number six spot. Bulldogs made news by returning to the Top 10 List for the first time in more than 70 years.
So what where the Top 10 Breeds for 2008?
1. Labrador Retriever
2. German Shepherd Dog
6. Yorkshire Terrier
7. Golden Retriever
10. Shih Tzu
What wonderful, amazing breeds of dogs this Top Ten List includes! Yet, don't forget that our animal shelters have many more loving, adorable dogs that perhaps do not carry the AKC pedigree. Both options are fabulous -- just have a dog in your life.
