According to the American Kennel Club the Top Ten List of Dogs for 2013 are:
- Labrador Retrievers (Sporting Group)
- German Shepherds (Herding Group)
- Golden Retrievers (Sporting Group)
- Beagles (Hound Group)
- Bulldogs (Non-Sporting Group)
- Yorkshire Terriers (Toy Group)
- Boxers (Working Group)
- Poodles (Non-Sporting Group)
- Rottweilers (Working Group)
- Dachshunds (Hound Group)
While the Labrador Retriever has been in the number one slot for several years the Rottweiler has made a significant rise up the “Most Wanted” list because back in 2003 and 2008 they were only ranked in 15th and 14th place, respectively. My favorite, Great Danes ranked#16…not too bad. If you want to see where your dog ranks you can check out the AKC’s list which is based on dog registrations.
This is Cece the Chocolate Lab – Just look at that face….no wonder Labs are the #1 dog.
Labrador Retriever – the #1 AKC registered dog!
