Labrador Retrievers Top American Kennel Club List

Labrador retrievers were ranked as America s favorite purebred dog for the sixteenth year in a row, according to the annual survey conducted by the American Kennel Club (AKC). Shaking up the list this year is the gains made by the Yorkshire Terrier, a breed that is poised to displace Golden retrievers in the well-established number two slot. Also noteworthy is the fact that the Miniature Schnauzer is in the number 10 spot this year, for the first time since 1990. For more information, visit the AKC website for a full list of top breeds.
