Recently announced by the American Kennel Club (AKC), the Labrador Retriever is, once again, the most popular pure bred dog in the United States.
The American Kennel Club® (AKC) announced, in a recent press release, that “the intelligent, family friendly breed has taken the #1 spot on the most popular list for the 23rd consecutive year, the longest reign at the top in AKC history.”
“Labrador Retriever lovers have spoken!” The popularity of the pint-sized, portable pooch just gave way to a litter of larger breeds in the Top 10. These predictable, durable, steady Labs are great with kids and offer the whole family more dog to love.
“Owning bigger breeds – an economic indicator of sorts – have been on the rise during the past five years,” said AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson. “As the economy has improved, people are turning back to the big dogs they love, which cost more to feed and care for than the smaller breeds that saw a rise in popularity in 2007 and 2008.” Read the rest of their article here
