American Kennel Club Announces the Top Dogs of San Francisco, 2008

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

The American Kennel Club released its stats of most popular dogs for 2008. (Sadly, if your pup didn’t come with papers, it might not have been counted. Moving on…)

What were the trends for 2008?

“San Franciscans seem to be moving their preferences from petite pooches to larger breeds,” said AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson. “The city by the bay added the German Shepherd and Rottweiler to its Top Ten while smaller breeds, such as the Pug and Dachshund, dropped in popularity.”

You see these Puli dogs all over town these days. When will they crack the top ten?   

The results for 2008, here are your most popular San Francisco doggies:

 1. Labrador Retriever
 2. Yorkshire Terrier
 3. Bulldog 
 4. Golden Retriever
 5. French Bulldog  
 6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
 7. Poodle     
 8. German Shepherd Dog 
 9. Maltese
 9. Rottweilers (tied)

Sorry Labradoodle, even though Brad Pitt gave one of you guys to Jennifer Anniston a while back, you’re still not respectable enough to be considered a breed of your own. Maybe next century.

More deets after the jump. Congratulations to the winners.
