The Top 30 Most Popular Dog Breeds Will Really Make You Want To Adopt A Dog

The Top 30 Most Popular Dog Breeds Will Make You Want To Adopt A Dog As Soon As Possible

Every day after work, I drive by a park where I can see about twenty dogs playing with each other in the distance. While sitting in traffic and paying no attention to the road, I gaze at the horizon with a dumb smile on my face looking at how happy they are while running freely on the manicured grass.

But as the stoplight lets us by a few cars at a time, the best part of my day quickly falls behind me and I go home to my dogless, quiet, clean house only to hang out without anyone or anything fiending for my attention. Frankly, it’s hell and I want a dog more than ever. And reading the list of most popular dog breeds didn’t help my psyche.

As reported by The American Kennel Club:

1. Retrievers (Labrador)
2. German Shepherd Dogs
3. Retrievers (Golden)
4. Bulldogs
5. Beagles
6. French Bulldogs
7. Yorkshire Terriers
8. Poodles
9. Rottweilers
10. Boxers
11. Pointers (German Shorthaired)
12. Siberian Huskies
13. Dachshunds
14. Doberman Pinschers
15. Great Danes
16. Miniature Schnauzers
17. Australian Shepherds
18. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
19. Shih Tzu
20. Pembroke Welsh Corgis
21. Pomeranians
22. Boston Terriers
23. Shetland Sheepdogs
24. Havanese
25. Mastiffs
26. Brittanys
27. Spaniels (English Springer)
28. Chihuahuas
29. Bernese Mountain Dogs
30. Spaniels (Cocker)

Fuck. Reading that list is like being a little kid who just rolled into an ice cream shot. You want every flavor, but you know your dad will only let you get one, two max. Personally, I want to single-handedly take Springer Spaniels to the top of the list by buying a lodge and breeding the fuck out of ’em, but that’s just me. If Brittanys are more your speed, go hit up that local shelter and make one lucky pups day. Tell ’em I sent you.
