Labrador Retriever America's Most Popular Dog 28th Year Straight

While there are certainly some people out there who don't love dogs, let’s face it, the majority of Americans are dog lovers, and there’s no doubt everyone has their favorite breed of pooch. But it seems there’s just one dog breed out there that most Americans simply love the best.

For the 28th year in a row, the Labrador Retriever tops the American Kennel Club’s list of America’s most popular dog. It isn’t much of a surprise the Lab earns the top spot, since it’s considered a family friendly pooch, with an eager-to-please temperament.

While this year’s Top Five is exactly the same as last year’s, there is one breed that seems to be gaining in popularity. The German Shorthaired pointer jumps to number nine this year, it’s highest place on the chart since it was first recognized in 1930.
