The French Bulldog is sitting pretty in the hearts of L.A. dog lovers as it retains its top spot in the American Kennel Club’s recent rankings of the most popular AKC-recognized dog breeds.
The French Bulldog was also recognized as the #1 pup in West Palm Beach and Sacramento.
The Shiba Inu moved up five spots in 2018, kicking the Rottweiler out of L.A.’s Top 10. Love for the Siberian Husky also grew this past year, as that breed climbed the ranks from number 25 all the way up to 11.
“The French Bulldog remained L.A.’s top dog in 2018,” said AKC Executive Secretary Gina DiNardo. “However, its English cousin, the Bulldog, remains only one spot behind once again.”
