Maya, the Labrador Retriever

Per the AKC Registration list, Labrador Retrievers are the most popular dog. And they have been the most popular dog for years now. What about the mutt? (But, then again, doesn’t it seem that almost every mutt is a lab mix?) My dog, Maya, is a Labrador Retriever while my other dog, Sephi, is a Lab/Chow/Shepherd mix.

While the Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog in America, the German Shepherd came second, and the Yorkie third. Following these are the remaining top ten – Golden Retriever (4), Beagle (5), Boxer (6), Bulldog (7), Dachshund (8), Poodle (9), and Shih Tzu (10). The AKC has also listed the most popular dog breeds by major US cities. To read more on the AKC statistics, visit http://www.akc.org/reg/dogreg_stats.cfm.
