2010 Most Popular Dogs

January 26, 2011, The American Kennel Club (AKC) announced it's nationwide registration statistics revealing that for the 20th consecutive year.

Once again the Labrador Retriever leads the rank at no.1 as the most popular dog in America, followed by German shepherd, Yorkshire at no. 3, no. 4 Beagle, no.5 Golden Retriever, Bulldog jumps up with it's highest ranking in a century at no.6, Boxer at no.7, no.8 Dachshung, no.9 Poodle and at no.10, none other than Shih Tzu.

This year's list included some shakeups in the top 10, the Beagle overtook the Golden Retriever for the 4th spot and the Bulldog, who has been steadily rising up in rank, took 6th place away from the Boxer, who dropped to 7th in 2010.

The AKC also added three dogs to it's list of registered breeds. They include an ancient Mexican breed, Xoloitzcuintli the calm, “noble,” pointy-eared dog – also called Xolo that comes in three sizes. The Norwegian Lundehund, which is handsome, athletic and playful. And the Entlebucher Mountain Dog made it's mark as a cattle herder in Switzerland, it was described as energetic, loyal and persistent.

The AKC compiles the list based on the number of dogs registered each year with the AKC said by director of public relation, Christina Duffney. Breeders of pedigree dogs provide their new owners with papers, and the owners file those papers with the America Kennel Club.
