Every day, a family in the U.S. is getting a new dog. But what kind of dog? The American Kennel Club has once again released their yearly most popular dog breed list, and not surprisingly, one breed has come out on the top for the 26th year in a row. But first, let's take a look at the rest of the top ten list.
This short-snouted pup comes in at number 10, probably because of that adorable face and vivacious personality.
9. Yorkshire Terrier
These tiny dogs have always been popular, probably because they look adorable wearing bows and are, well, easily portable!
From small to very big, the Rottweiler has always been a popular dog for its big (and sweet) personality.
Although the hybrid Goldendoodles have become more popular, the original Poodle is still plenty popular, with and without their various grooming styles.
6. French Bulldog
Another little pup, the French Bulldog has always been popular for its very regal face and cute little legs.
"Shiloh" never gets old. Beagles are the stars of plenty of books and TV shows, probably for that lovable face and distinct pattern.
The Bulldog is even more popular than its "French" cousin. The Bulldog has gained popularity over the years, probably for that adorably "mean" mug.
3. Golden Retriever
The star of "Air Bud" and countless other dog movies, Golden Retrievers will likely always be a popular breed in America.
2. German Shepherd Dog
German Shepherds are classic dogs. From their goofy nature to their guard dog abilities, Shepherds are perfect for almost any family.
1. Labrador Retriever
And of course, the reigning champion for 26 years and counting, the Labrador Retriever! Labs are popular for their classic friendly personality, their ability to be active and couch potatoes, and their overall cuteness!
