I asked the question yesterday what is your favorite dog breed and the answers kinda surprised me.

The answers varied from Great Danes, to Cheweenies, to Rat Terriers, Golden Retrievers, German Shepard, and one of my favorites the Rottweiler. Of course the rescues got some love regardless of the breed.

The website Franchise Opportunities had a story talking about the most popular dog breeds by state and the answers in this story really shocked me.

The French Bulldog is popular in Rhode Island, New York, Florida, Illinois, and Massachusetts. Little cute Chihuahuas are popular in New Mexico, Louisiana has a favorite in the St. Bernard, kinda of a weird choice since you seem to think those dogs would only like cold climates.

Now for the two states we live in. In Texas the most favorite dog breed is the Doberman Pinscher. It is also the most popular breed in Kentucky, Kansas, Indianan, Ohio, Tennessee, and North Carolina.

In Arkansas the favorite dog breed is wait for it. A Poodle, yes a Poodle. When it comes to the most popular dog breeds in the country, Doberman Pinscher is number one with second being the French Bulldog and the Rottweiler in third place.

What breed is your favorite?
