When it comes to man’s best friend, there are so many wonderful pups from which to choose.
The American Kennel Club just announced 2017’s top dog: the Labrador retriever. The pup is the most popular breed for the 27th year in a row.
The AKC says the Lab “has its paws firmly planted in Americans’ hearts. It’s such a versatile and family friendly breed.”
It’s also the most popular pup in Ohio, too.
The German shepherd came in at #2. The French bulldog was a mover and a shaker, coming in at #4. The pup knocked the Beagle out of the top 5 for the first time since 1998, the kennel club said.
