One Out of Every 7 Dogs in the AKC...

  • One out of every 7 dogs in the American Kennel Club is a Labrador Retriever.
  • The top ten most popular breeds in the AKC account for more than half of all registrations, while more than 100 of the more uncommon breeds account for less than 15% of the total.
  • Or, to put it another way Labrador Retrievers account for more AKC registrations than the 118 least popular breeds COMBINED.

Hahaha, at least they have a good-size gene pool, right?

I do think Labs are pretty ideal American dogs. We're generally lazy couch potatoes, and so are they. My unregistered Lab gets more exercise than most, but she'd be happy to sleep on the couch either way.
