American dog lovers have made Labradors their top dogs for the 18th year in a row, the American Kennel Club said. According to USA Today, more pure-bred Labradors were registered in the US than any other breed, and that was before Marley and Me hit the screens. Others in the top 10 include the poodle, shih tzu, Yorkshire terrier, German shepherd, dachshund, boxer, beagle, bull dog and golden retriever.

In all fairness, the kennel club also listed favourite breeds according to city. People in Chicago prefer vizslas while those in San Diego like miniature pinschers.
