 Earlier this year, the AKC released a list of the most popular dogs within the United States, based on AKC registrations.  The most interesting indicator of canine ownership over the last five years, as AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson pointed out, is “As the economy has improved, people are turning back to the big dogs they love, which cost more to feed and care for than the smaller breeds that saw a rise in popularity in 2007 and 2008.”

Additionally, we're apparently in the midst of French Bulldog-mania!  Over the last 10 years, the Frenchie has rose 323% in popularity to land at 11th on the list! 

Below is the top 5 most popular breeds within the United States.
