Here are the Most Popular Dog Breeds in the U.S. for 2016

 

The American Kennel Club has just announced its list of the most popular dog breeds in the U.S. for the year 2016.  Topping the list for an incredible 26th year in a row…the Labrador Retriever!  Will any other breed of dog ever knock the lovable Lab from the number one spot?  Here’s a look at the rest of the top contenders…

 

 

After the Lab, the most popular purebred dogs are:

  • German Shepherds
  • Golden Retrievers
  • Bulldogs
  • Beagles
  • French Bulldogs
  • Poodles
  • Rottweilers
  • Yorkshire Terriers
  • Boxers

 

 

The AKC notes that their rankings do not represent numbers for the ever-popular mixed breed “mutt” or hybrids like labradoodles and maltipoos.

 

 

Rottweilers are enjoying their highest ranking in many years, after a drop from #2 in 1997.  French Bulldogs are surging in popularity.  Just 10 years ago, Frenchies were ranked at #36.  Other breeds rising through the ranks include Siberian Huskies, Australian Shepherds, Great Danes, and the Belgian Malinois.  The Beagle is the only breed to always be in the top 10 since the AKC began the rankings back in the 1880s!
