The Nation's Top Dog

Are you in the market for a new member of the family? The American Kennel Club recently announced it's top 10 breeds for 2008. Holding the top spot for the 18th consecutive year, the Labrador Retriever is the most popular purebred in the U.S. Here's the national top 10 according to the AKC:
  1. Labrador Retriever
  2. Yorkshire Terrier
  3. German Shepherd Dog
  4. Golden Retriever
  5. Beagle
  6. Boxer
  7. Dachshund
  8. Bulldog
  9. Poodle
  10. Shih Tzu
The big news maker among these breeds is the bulldog. The bulldog made news last year by returning to the AKC's top 10 list after a 70 year absence. It jumped 6% to land in 8th place. For more information on the dog rankings by city just click here.
