Pembroke Welsh Corgi knocks the Yorkie out of top 10 most popular breeds, while Labs remain #1


The Labrador Retriever continues its hold on the hearts of American dog owners. According to the most recent American Kennel Club registration statistics, the loveable Lab remains the number one most popular breed in the United States. But in a surprise take over, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi made some moves, ascending the list over the past 10 years. The lively little herder landed at number 10, knocking the Yorkshire Terrier out of the top 10, where it has been since 1995.

In addition to the country’s most popular, the AKC reported there were some less common breeds on the rise in 2019. The Boykin Spaniel rose 11 spots (100 to 89), the Lowchen rose 10 spots (168 to 158), the Swedish Vallhund rose 10 spots (169 to 159), and the Lagotto Romagnolo rose nine spots (99 to 90). Over the past decade, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon made quite a jump, rising 46 spots from 108th in 2009 to 62nd in 2019.
