Found this post on another forum. thought i might be interesting for everyone to see where your dog's breed is on the list. Smile
For the 17th year in a row, the Labrador retriever is once again America's favorite purebred dog, according to registration numbers tallied by the American Kennel Club. The AKC released the figures and, as in past years, the Labrador far outstrips the other dogs in the top 10. For the first time, the bulldog made it into the top ten list since 1935.

Changes This Year

Last year, all breeds in the top 10 were the same as the prior year but not this year.
The bulldog made the list this year displacing the Miniature Schnauzer from the top 10 list. The boxer jumped one notch to #6 bumping the dachshund into the #7 position.

Two years ago, in 2005, one new breed joined the top 10 list and one got bumped off. The Miniature Schnauzer came in at #10 displacing the Chihuahua into the #11 positiion.
