MARY REICHARD, HOST: There’s a new challenger for #2 top dog in the hearts of American dog lovers.
The American Kennel Club released its annual popularity rankings. These are based on registration statistics.
And this year, there is a new No.2 on the list announced here on AKC tv.
AKC: A huge surprise to everybody and us as well. We were excited to see a shakeup in our top-5. Up the rankings from last year to number 2, the French Bulldog!
Rounding out the top-5, at number 5, the good ole classic bulldog.
At number 4, golden retrievers. Number 3? German shepherds. Then of course our newcomer the French Bulldog at 2.
Now the number 1 most popular dog in America? Probably no surprise. The breed’s been there for 30 years—drumroll please…
The Labrador retriever. Intelligent, even tempered, kind, agile, and trusting.
BROWN: What’s not to like?
Why’s my Moxie mutt not on that list?
It’s The World and Everything in It.
