Top Ten Dog Breeds By Popularity, Allergies, Cost

2005 Top 10 Dog Breeds List

For the 16th consecutive year, the Labrador Retriever is the most popular purebred dog in America, according to AKC® registration figures released today. The Golden Retriever held onto the number two spot and the Yorkshire Terrier made significant gains -beating the German Shepherd Dog and Beagle — to become the third most popular dog in the country.

"This may be the Year of the Dog in China , but in this country it's the 'Year of the Yorkie'," said Gail Miller, AKC spokesperson. "The Lab may still reign supreme, but the petite and often-pampered Yorkshire Terrier has taken the coveted number three spot for the first time since becoming AKC -recognized in 1885. Considering the increasing popularity of small dogs in the past decade—perhaps due to their exposure as celebrity companions – I'm not surprised to learn that this precious and portable canine may slip into the number two slot in 2006."
