DENVER -- There’s no doubt about it, Denver loves dogs -- no matter the breed. But there are few varieties of pups you might see more often than others in the Mile High City.
Once again, the Labrador Retriever was Denver’s top dog in 2016, according to the American Kennel Club. The Labrador Retriever was also recognized as the #1 pup in Boston, Atlanta, and Houston.
Here are Denver’s five most popular breeds from last year:
1. Labrador Retriever
2. German Shepherd Dog
3. Golden Retriever
5. French Bulldog
And more than likely, the breeds listed above will come to the words of "Charlie," "Bella," "Max," or "Lucy." Those were the top dog names in the city in 2016. Here are the rest of the top 10 dog names in Denver.
