For the 21st Straight Year, Labrador Retrievers are the Most Popular Dogs in America

Labrador Retrievers are the classic American dog…they’re friendly, loyal, good with kids, and like to play. So I’m not surprised they’ve been the most popular dogs in the country for over two decades.

The American Kennel Club just released their annual list of the most popular dogs in the country, and for the 21st year in a row Labrador Retrievers are number one.

Here’s a picture of my yellow lab Zoey hanging out with my niece Rachel:

The rest of the top 10 are German Shepherds, Beagles, Golden Retrievers, Yorkshire Terriers, Bulldogs, Boxers, Poodles, Dachshunds, and Rottweilers.

This is the first time in over a decade that Shih Tzus weren’t in the top 10…they finished 11th.

On the other end, American Foxhounds were the least popular of the 173 dog breeds registered. Harriers were the second-least popular, and English Foxhounds were third-least popular.
