Throughout history, people have bred dogs with certain traits to help them perform tasks, such as protecting or herding livestock, retrieving waterfowl to pulling a cart. As a result, man’s best friend comes in a variety of sizes, coats and temperaments. Despite these distinctions, some breeds have a broad appeal. These popular breeds are easier to find because more people are breeding them.
The intelligent, loyal Labrador Retriever has topped the list of most popular dog breeds for more than 20 years.
