Watch out, there is a new “big” dog in town.
The American Kennel Club announced on Wednesday, March 15, that the Labrador Retriever (often called “Labs”) has been dethroned as the most popular breed in America (for the first time in 31 years!) and has been replaced by the French Bulldog (aka “Frenchies”).
Gina DiNardo, who is the AKC’s executive secretary, shared in an official press release: “The French bulldog has seen a surge in popularity over the years, and for good reason. Frenchies are playful, adaptable, loyal and outgoing.”
