What’s your favourite dog breed? Yesterday (March 16th), the American Kennel Club (AKC) announced that French bulldogs are now recognized as the second-most popular purebred dog, just behind the Labrador retriever. Frenchies were also recognized as the favourite purebred for pet owners in Los Angeles for the third year running. The breed has gotten so popular that it’s knocked the German shepherd, which held the second-place position since 2009, to third place, while the golden retriever and bulldog rounded out the fourth and fifth spots, respectively. For the Labrador retriever, this was its 30th straight year at the top of the list.
