Most searched dog breeds of 2013

There are all sorts of lists of most popular dog breeds in different countries, cities, and so on. Google has put a new twist on the list. Here is their top ten count of most searched dog breeds in the US during 2013.

The Bulldog was the most search for breed during
2013 on Google in the US.
1. Bulldog
2. Chihuahua
3. Poodle
4. Golden Retriever
5. Pug
6. Pomeranian
7. Shih Tzu
8. Collie
9. Beagle
10. Maltese

The bulldog was also the fifth most popular dog breed in America in 2012, according to the American Kennel Club's list. It will be interesting to see if it has gained positions during 2013. Numbers on that aren't out yet.

In 2012, the Beagle was number four on AKC's popularity list, Golden Retriever number three, German Shepherd number two, and Labrador Retriever number one. If the Labrador keeps its ranking, it will have been the nation's most popular dog for 23 years in a row.

If you're curious to see where your dog breed ranks, AKC has a complete list here, with comparisons ten years back in time.

Do you have one of these dogs? Did you search it?

  1. Don't have one of these dogs and didn't search for them. I wonder what people were searching for? Probably health things. Maybe. :)
