Top 10 dog breeds in the UK and the US

I was reading over at the American Kennel Club website about the top breeds in the US and in the UK. They differ slightly, but both feature the Labrador Retriever, the Golden Retriever and the German Shepherd. All three of which are big strong dogs, interestingly though the interest in smaller dogs is on the up. French Bulldogs, Brussels Griffon, Chinese Crested, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and the Papillon all showing rising ownership.

The Top Ten for the UK were:

  1. Labrador Retriever
  2. Cocker Spaniel (English)
  3. English Springer Spaniel
  4. German Shepherd Dog (Alsatian)
  5. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
  6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
  7. Golden Retriever
  8. West Highland White Terrier
  9. Boxer
  10. Border Terrier

And for the US it was:

  1. Labrador Retriever
  2. Golden Retriever
  3. German Shepherd Dog
  4. Beagle
  5. Yorkshire Terrier
  6. Dachshund
  7. Boxer
  8. Poodle
  9. Shih Tzu
  10. Chihuahua
