  1. Labrador Retrievers

Year in and year out, Labrador Retrievers are THE most popular breed in American. They have held this position for 25 years in a row. Frankly, it is easy to understand why. First off, Lab puppies are one of the cutest things in the entire world. They are little fluff balls attached to happy, eager faces. They grow up to be smart, loving, and endlessly friendly dogs. It you are considering bringing a puppy home to your family, you can’t go wrong with a Labrador Retriever.

  1. German Shepherds

Just as Labrador Retrievers have long held the #1 spot on the list of the most popular breeds in America, German Shepherds have long held the #2 spot. German Shepherds are actually a relatively young breed of dog, appearing for the first time in the early 1900s. They are known for their strength, intelligence, obedience, and extraordinary trainability. They are commonly used as working dogs, either for disability assistance or for police work. Most German Shepherds have a tan and black two-layer coat although rare variation such as pure white and pure black do exist. German Shepherds are also very well known for their amazing scent work.
