And the Most Popular Dog Breed in America Is …

Jen Austin – Townsquare Media

Not the miniature schnauzer. That’s what breed my slightly nervous, begrudgingly-tolerant, and attention-hogging boy Harry is. Do you own the most popular breed in America?

The American Kennel Club said yesterday that the most popular breed in America is the Labrador Retriever. And that’s 24 straight years the breed has been No. 1.

Here are the most popular breeds for 2014, according to the AKC:

  1. Labrador retriever
  2. German shepherd dog
  3. Golden retriever
  4. Bulldog
  5. Beagle
  6. Yorkshire terrier
  7. Poodle
  8. Boxer
  9. French bulldog
  10. Rottweiler

The AKC says the bulldog is more popular than ever and ranks the highest it’s ever been on the list. Adam Sandler, Brad Pitt, and Ozzy Osbourne own or have owned bulldogs and they might agree that bulldogs are pretty cool.

What’s your favorite breed? It may not be the smartest breed — just the one that loves us the best. In that case, a mini schnauzer that’s willing to let a 3-year old put a Christmas tree hat on him is pretty awesome.
