The Top 10 Most Popular Dog Breeds in America in 2017
Today, the American Kennel Club announced the results of their annual survey of the most popular dog breeds in America, and once again, the Labrador Retriever took the top spot. For 27 years in a row, the Lab has been #1 on the list, which is determined by the AKC based on the number of registrations received. In fact, the top three breeds are the same as last year’s top three. The big mover this year was French Bulldog, who broke through into the top five for the first time, earning the #4 spot. The #10 spot on the list is the only newcomer – the German Shorthaired Pointer.
