 Yet again, the Labrador Retriever is America's favorite dog. The American Kennel Club (AKC) released its list of the top 10 most popular dog breeds of 2018 and out of the 193 recognized breeds, Labs remain a solid favorite topping the list for the 28th year in a row! It is little surprise for those who adore them. Labs are active, outgoing and an eager to please temperament makes them a wonderful family dog as well as a popular choice for service dogs, search and rescue dogs, and therapy dogs. While the Labrador Retriever has been top choice since 1991, the easygoing, playful, adaptable French Bulldog is steadily rising in popularity, which remains in the fourth position. Only the Golden Retriever (#3) and German Shepherd Dog (#2) are above it.  The Bulldog, Beagle, Poodle, Rottweiler, German Shorthaired Pointer and Yorkshire Terrier round out the top 10. As for the most popular breed of dog in Florida, the honor is with the confident, courageous and smart German Shepherd Dog. Of course, you can not discount a shelter dog either.  They are full of life, love, are loyal, make great family pets and are waiting to be adopted!
