The Results Are In: Most Popular Dog Breed

While the American Kennel Club releases an ordered list of the top 10 most popular dog breeds based on the previous year's registered numbers, I decided to host my own informal survey here on PetSugar to see which pooch our readers picked as the most common. Choosing from the most popular dogs from 2007, you decided that this year's list toppers would be Labrador Retrievers! Considering that this breed's come out on top for the last 17 years and counting, I'm thinking your vote for labs will be right again this year when the results come in.

However, I'm gonna go ahead and award the Bulldog some love 'cause of his smooshy face, of course, but also since last year was his first time breaking into the top 10 since 1935. I'm predicting big things from the big "bully" in the future. If you haven't voted yet, don't forget to take your pick because I'll be comparing our final rankings to the official ones released by the AKC in January.

Great point, fuzzles. Before I got my dog I'd never heard about rescues (and knew very little about dogs, for that matter). Since I've gotten him, I've found many Italian Greyhound rescues online, and will probably go that route next time around. There are many pure breeds out there ready to be rescued.

Mesayme, If you have settled on a bully as a breed that is the right match for you, be sure to check out to see what bullies are available in your area. Also, Google local bully rescues in your area. You'd be surprised how many purebreds are looking for great homes. Best of luck! *snort snort* :D

Aw... when I get a dog, I'm definitely getting a bulldog. Probably won't be a rescue though. I bet no one ever gives away those sweet pooches! :) We'll just have to have 2 dogs! :D
