Article 2 (Sept 2018): Labrador again tops list of most popular breeds in America
September 27, 2018For 27 years in a row, the lovable Labrador Retriever has ranked as the number one breed of dog in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club.
This year the lab takes the top spot again with the German Shepherd and Golden Retriever in their familiar second and third places. Rounding out the list of the top 10 are the French Bulldog, Bulldog, Beagle, Poodle, Rottweiler, Yorkshire Terrier, and German Shorthaired Pointer.
According to Marketwatch, trends among popular dog breeds have changed over the years as different kinds of dogs have enjoyed the media spotlight in movies and pop culture. Beagles, for instance, held the number one spot during the heyday of the Peanut's Snoopy character and have never fallen below ninth since then. In 1943, the movie 'Lassie Come Home,' meanwhile, cemented the Collie in the top 10 for the next 30 years.
Despite their lofty positions now, 2017's top three breeds held the 42nd, 18th, and 65th positions when the AKC started tracking popularity back in 1935.
According to the ASPCA, about 44 percent of all households in the United States have a dog, adding up to approximately 78 million dogs nationwide.
