New York State’s Three Most Popular Dog Breeds
It’s no secret that dogs are man’s best friend. I have owned a dog since I was a child and I can never imagine living with my dog by my side.
Dog owners are a close-knit community, who come together to share their special bond with their four-legged family member or multiple dogs in many cases.
We have owned a beaglebull (pitbull / bagle mix) named Odessa for three years and she is just amazing. He’s a rescue dog who just needed a loving home.
When you walk around your neighborhood in New York State, you may see more dog breeds than others. I know we see a lot of labs in my South Buffalo neighborhood, but are there some dog breeds that are more popular than others in New York State?
It turns out there is.
According to Reader’s Digest, the three most popular dog breeds in New York City are:
- Labrador Retrievers
- German Shepherds
- Golden Retrievers
It makes perfect sense. I’ve lost count of how many labs and goldens I’ve seen in the western New York neighborhoods. German Shepherds are also beautiful dogs. It is a dream to have one in our family one day.
Pennsylvania also has exactly the three most popular dog breeds.
If you are about to have a dog, take the step of faith and adopt one. So many dogs need loving homes, and rescue dogs deserve a chance as many of them are in no-fault shelters.
