THE LABRADOR RETRIEVER!

The Labrador Retriever took Phoenix's top spot in the American Kennel Club's (AKC®) 2015 ranking of the most popular AKC-recognized dog breeds in the U.S.

The Lab was also recognized as the #1 pup in Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver.

The AKC today also announced its nationwide rankings.  The Labrador Retriever – an intelligent, family friendly breed – holds tight to the number one spot on the most popular list for the 25th consecutive year, continuing the longest reign as the nation's top dog in AKC history.

While the Lab is clearly America's dog, the French Bulldog is poised for a takeover.  The affectionate and playful breed continues to win the hearts of dog lovers everywhere, jumping three spots to number six in 2015.
