Every year the American Kennel Club compiles a list of Atlanta’s top 10 favorite dog breeds. Last year, the Labrador Retriever remained at the top spot, the very popular dog has been the most popular breed in America for the last 25 years according to AKC.
Mainly because it’s a great family dog if given enough exercise. Labrador’s are always happy and upbeat, in a transplant city like Atlanta, the Labrador makes for a perfect addition to the house.
Atlanta’s most popular dogs in 2015:
- Labrador Retriever
- Golden Retriever
- German Shepard
- French Bulldog
The boxer fell out of contention from 6th to 10th, same with the Yorkshire Terriers which dropped from 7th to 9th.
“Atlanta loves it’s retrievers” says, AKC VP Gina DiNardo. “The Lab holds onto the top spot with the Golden Retriever nipping at it’s heels”.
The Georgia House of Representatives has passed a bill to possibly name a “state dog”. Could the Labrador Retriever be Georgia’s state dog?
