These Are the World's Most Popular Dog Breeds, Based on a Highly Scientific Instagram Hashtag Survey
Whether you own a dog or not, everyone has their pooch preferences. And everyone thinks their dog (or dream dog) is the cutest, funniest, most Instagrammable, et cetera. So it’s good to get a little perspective once in a while on which breeds are actually the most popular; even better if it’s in the form of a highly accurate and non-biased Instagram hashtag survey.
Thankfully, the kind people at the website MyVoucherCodes (huh?) did exactly that. Analyzing three types of popular dog-related Instagram tags (breed, breedofinstagram and breed variation), they came up with the world’s (or rather, Instagram’s) 20 most popular dog breeds.
You can view the entire list online, but we don’t think the results will be too surprising. In the top ten? Pomeranians, Yorkshire terriers, dachshunds, Siberian huskies, Labrador and golden retrievers, English bulldogs, chihuahuas and pugs. We admit we were a little shocked that the Shiba Inu ranked only 13th, considering its “it” dog status…but everything else seems in order. And the number one breed based on a total of 39,218,086 combined hashtags is—drumroll, please…
The French bulldog—of course.
