American Kennel Club announced their 2009 list of the country’s most popular dogs. Lucky for us, they broke down their lists for each particular state (or in our case, the District).

DC’s most popular breeds include:

  1. Labrador Retriever
  2. Yorkshire Terrier
  3. Golden Retriever
  4. Poodle
  5. Bulldog/Dachshund/Shih Tzu (These dogs tied for fifth.)

What do you think? Does this list hold true? Is your dog not represented in this top 5? Shout it out in the comments and give your pup credit where credit is due (aka mad love for being super cute)!

Rachel moved to DC in the fall of 2005 to study Journalism and Music at American University. When she’s not keeping up with the latest Major League Baseball news, she works on making music as an accomplished singer-songwriter and was even a featured performer/speaker at TEDxDupont Circle in 2012. Rachel has also contributed to The Washington Examiner and MASN Sports’ Nationals Buzz as a guest blogger. See why she loves DC. E-Mail: rachel@welovedc.com.
