The Labrador Retriever is Top Dog Breed Again…
No surprise. Intro “We are the Champions” please!!. Pound for Pound and still the undefeated reigning champion… the Labrador Retriever is King!
It is no Surprise that the Athletic, Versatile, Lovable and Adorable Labrador Retriever has once again been named America’s most popular dog, continuing the breed’s 23-year streak at the top. In my opinion and I may be a bit biased, the Labrador is the quintessential family dog.
The “Nay” Sayers
The Funny thing is that every year the Labrador wins, they always say that insert dog breed here is the next in line to take the top spot. Well bring it! Oh, and good luck while you are at it too.
The Flip Side
Now there is a flip side to being at the top and that is it only increases the demand for this lovable adorable breed. That means that more Labradors will end up with families that do not do the research before bringing in one into the family. That result is seen by the countless Labs in Rescues every year that are looking for a Forever home. Labrador Retrievers and dogs are a big commitment and should always be treated that way.
