Even though you may not care what kind of dog breed you get, there are plenty of dog lovers that do. It's not hard to see why this breed has once again topped the list for the 28th year in a row.
The American Kennel Club just came out with a list of the 10 most popular dog breeds in the U.S., and for the 28th straight year, Labrador retrievers are at the top as reported by USA Today. Here is the list of the 10 most popular breeds:
- Labrador retrievers
- German shepherds
- Golden retrievers
- French bulldogs
- German shorthair pointers
- Yorkshire terriers
As an owner of 2 dogs, a golden retriever/lab and a beagle/lab, I can tell you first hand how much it doesn't surprise me that each part of their mix is on this list. I'm not going to gloat about their intelligence and loyalty, cause most every dog owner will say that about their dog. What I am most proud of is that they are amazing dogs to us even though they didn't have a great past before we rescued them. Please do me a favor and always consider a rescue first before anything else. There are a ton of sheltered dogs that need a good home, especially in Bakersfield. With lots of love and proper training, most of them are able to live a joyful and happy life.
