Labradors Rule, Boxers Drool? This Year’s Most Popular Dog Breeds

(DOG BREEDS/DOGS/LIFE WITH PETS) The results are in, and they may surprise you! Trupanion, a pet insurance company, conducted a study to find out what the most popular dog breeds are across North America. Although some may assume that purebred dogs like Labrador Retrievers would be most preferred by guardians, mixed breeds take the top spot as the most popular dog breed in America. Mutts not only tend to live longer because of their genetic makeups, but they also have unique characteristics and personalities. Since adopting mixed breed dogs provides homes to animals in need, it's no wonder so many Americans love them! Adopting a pet is always the best option, and results show that many families are already choosing to adopt, rather than buy a pet dog.
