Golden Retriever's and Labrador Retrievers are the most popular breeds in the World.

Other popular breeds are - Beagle, Chihuahua, Basset Hound, Boxer, Collie, Dalmatian, Rottweiler, Yorkshire Terrier, German Shepherd Dog, Pug, Bulldog and Poodle.

Bully breeds should be more popular! Breeds like Pit Bulls, Staffordshire Terriers, Bull Terriers, etc., to show people that they are really great dogs.

According to the AKC Labs are the number one most popular dog and have been for nearly 20 years.

Actually, Pit Bulls are pretty popular already. That's one reason why you hear so much about them: popularlity equals more irresponsible and/or ignorant owners owning them and irresponsible and/or ignorant breeders breeding them.
Also because there are quite a few breeds similar to Pit Bulls that are always getting called them when they are not. Labs have been mistaken for Pit Bulls, too.

Not trying to be a wet blanket or anything, I do love American Pit Bull Terriers and Stafffordshire Terriers.

The Labrador Retriever is the number one breed in America by a MILE, and has been for 20 years straight. The Golden is #5, and the Rott doesn't even make the top ten (barely)- it's #11.

Check out the full list from the AKC right here:

Keep in mind, this is the AKC, and since they don't register Pitbulls, they don't make the list. It also doesn't account for mutts. But since the AKC is the largest registry in America, it's a good snapshot of dog ownership, at least.
