American Kennel Club just released 2016 Most Popular Dog Breeds list and there is no surprise which dog holds the top spot.
Labrador Retrievers are taking home the gold (again) this year, for the 26th consecutive time. It is understandable that America’s go-to family dog would be the winner. Coming in at second place is the German Shepard. These dogs have proved their excellent ability to be successful working canines and have the earned many awards for Canine Excellence. I think they earned that silver metal. Golden retrievers, Bulldogs, and Beagles all follow closely behind. These top 5 breeds have been consistent since 2013; do you think next year will change? Probably not, but check it out, and see where your dog stands on the list.
