How popular is your dog? Outside of your household, that is.

Puppers come in all shapes and sizes, but some of those shapes and sizes are in higher demand than others. (Just ask Lady Gaga's poor French bulldogs, who survived a brazen dognapping in 2021.)  

Some breeds are known for being stoic and serious, while others are goofy and playful well into their senior years. 

Each year, the American Kennel Club ranks the most popular dog breeds in the country. We ranked the top 50 here.

So, which breeds are you most likely to see out for an afternoon walk when you step outside your home? Keep going to find out.
