If you are a dog owner, you probably already know just how awesome dogs really are and why they deserve the title “Man’s Best Friend.” These four-legged besties are not only intelligent, loyal, affectionate and devoted, but they are also known to improve our mental and physical health.  There’s a dog breed for anyone, and they are sure to love you unconditionally while always giving you something to smile about. Here are the Top 5 most popular breeds in the US:

#1. Labrador Retriever

Labrador

Why are we not surprised at this top breed? Both a friendly companion and a working dog, this breed has historically warmed hearts as a rescuer, show competitor and assistant to the handicapped. Good-natured and reliable, these beauties have it all.

 

#2 German Shepherd

The regal-like build of a German Shepherd makes it stand out as one of the most alert and watchful breeds. Known for their strength, intelligence and trainability, they are often used for police and military roles.

 

#3 Golden Retriever

Aww, everyone’s favorite family dog! With its gentle temperament and friendly spirit, this breed is typically unsuited as a guard dog. Well, unless it’s possible to be licked into remission!

 

#4 Beagle

Beagle

Small, but mighty, this pooch is popular for its size, good temperament and lack of inherited health problems. And, you know, the whole Snoopy thing.

 

#5 Bulldog

How can you not love that face? The hefty, muscular and wrinkle-faced companion is often considered a national icon symbolizing pluck and determination. We just think they are irresistibly smoochable!

 

 

As dog-lovers, we have to note that while purebreds are absolutely beautiful dogs, there are tons of equally lovable and deserving non-purebreds (dare we say, mutts!) worthy of your love and a good forever home, too. Check your local animal shelter for a mixed breed to rescue and adopt today!
