*Paws* what you’re doing and read this!
For the last 135 years, the American Kennel Club has worked to advance canine health and well-being, promote responsible dog ownership, and protect the rights of all dog owners. It not only provides a marketplace for dog lovers to find their next furry friend, but offers information on every existing dog breed, as well as expert advice. It’s basically an encyclopedia for all things dog. Not to mention, its site is filled with fun activities like sending your loved ones “puppygrams” or nominating your own dog to be apart of the feel-good program.
Last month, the AKC gave us some insights into which dog breeds America is loving the most in 2020. Using stats from 2019, it put together an extensive list ranking 193 different breeds, beginning with the most popular dog breed in the United States, and ending with the least. You can check out this *ultimutt* list here, but as for now, here are the top ten doggos. These adorable pictures are hard to fur-get!
Labrador Retrievers are known for their friendly and outgoing nature. These playful four-legged friends make great house pets and typically weigh between 55 and 80 pounds. They’re perfect for cuddles!
German Shepherds are known for their confident, smart, and courageous nature. These big dogs can weigh between 50 and 90 pounds. As the AKC writes, they have the “ability to learn commands for many tasks, and the willingness to put their life on the line in defense of loved ones.”
Retrievers FTW! Golden Retrievers are intelligent, friendly, and devoted dogs. Their elegant and rich coat of gold gives the breed its name. These guys never run out of energy.
French Bulldogs are adaptable, playful, and smart. This breed is known for its large “bat ears,” and is a smaller version of the Bulldog.
Bulldogs are friendly, courageous, and calm. As the AKC writes, “the Bulldog is a thick-set, low-slung, well-muscled bruiser whose ‘sourmug’ face is the universal symbol of courage and tenacity.”
Poodles are active, proud, and smart. They come in three sizes: standard, miniature, or toy. Poodles can rock a variety of different clips.
Beagles are friendly, curious, and merry. They have big brown or hazel eyes and were formerly bred to hunt in packs.
Rottweilers are loyal, loving, and make for confident guardians. These dogs can weigh between 80 and 135 pounds and are very strong. They are characterized by a short black coat with smart rust markings and are born with a territorial instinct.
German Shorthaired Pointers are friendly, smart, and love to please others. These dogs have “friendly eyes” and were built to work long days in the field or at the lake, according to the AKC. They’re known for power, speed, agility, and endurance.
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are affectionate, smart, and alert. They may be small, but they’re full of energy and are equipped with short but mighty legs.
